4500 kilometres of roads to be repaired in Angola this year

23 April 2013

A total of 4,500 kilometres of roads are being repaired under the terms of the programme for road conservation and maintenance of the Angolan National Roads Institute (INEA), the institute’s managing director said.

On the sidelines of the 1st Consultative Council of the Construction Ministry, held recently in the city of Uíge, the managing director Molares D’Abril said that the programme included repairing potholes, cleaning verges, cutting back brush, replacing signage, setting milestones, and improving road safety, amongst other tasks.

“The targets set for 2012 were met and this year work is being carried out on around 4,500 kilometres, as not all maintenance work went as we would have liked,” noted D’Abril, cited by Angolan news agency Angop.

Molares D’Abril said that INEA planned to finish laying asphalt on 12,000 kilometres of roads by the end of the year. (macauhub)
