Angola repairs around 8,000 kilometres of roads

8 January 2014

Angola’s Construction Minister, Waldemar Pires Alexandre, said that 7,900 kilometres of roads and 311 bridges would be repaired as part of the road reconstruction programme.

Pires Alexandre told Angolan news agency Angop that the Angola Roads Institute (INEA) had built 568 bridges and assembled 347 temporary metal bridges.

The minister noted that around 4,200 bridges destroyed in the country’s civil war still had to be repaired.

“Rebuilding these bridges, to improve the national road system, will be the next step,” the minister said. (macauhub)
