Asphalting work on the Nampula to Moma road, over a distance of 300 kilometres, is due to begin in 2015, the Deputy Minister of Public Works and Housing, Francisco Pereira said recently in Ribaué.
According to Mozambican daily newspaper Notícias, the work involves the first phase of the project, which will cover the stretch between the city of Nampula and the town of Nametil.
The deputy minister said everything is being done for the work to start on schedule, especially since the US$100 million needed to carry out the work will be provided by South Korea.
Pereira said that the second phase of works will include asphalting of the Nametil to Moma section, which is in a terrible state of repair.
In 2013 the Minister of Public Works and Housing, Cadmiel Mutemba said that after completion of the Nampula-Nametil section and based on priorities set by the government and on available funding, identical work would be carried out on other sections in advanced state of disrepair, specifically Nametil to Moma, Nametil to Angoche, Angoche to Monapo and Moma to Angoche.
