26 November 2012

The Angolan government has estimated that building its national highways network will cost US$32 billion, the director of the Studies, Planning and Statistics Office of the Angolan Transport Ministry, Teresa Muro, said Sunday in Luanda.

Muro noted that the advantages of the project were increased access between the country’s main cities and areas with higher economic potential, a reduction in the number of accidents and of environmental and social and economic impacts as compared to the current national roads network.

According to Angolan news agency Angop, Muro, who was speaking at the 2nd edition of Expotrans – Angolan Transport and Logistics Fair, said that Angola planned to build 5,900 kilometres of highways. (macauhub)
