Brazilian group Odebrecht awarded contract in Angola

15 April 2015

The government of Angola will spend over US$216 million on the second phase of construction of corridors for public transport in the province of Luanda, according to a presidential order.

The order authorises hiring Brazilian group Odebrecht for the construction contract, worth US$202.6 million and awards supervision of the project to DAR Angola, for US$14.1 million.

The Ministers of Construction, Waldemar Pires Alexandre and of Transport, Augusto Tomás, announced in December 2014 that the Angolan capital will have over 32 kilometres of exclusive public transport lanes.

This new high-capacity transport will have a reserved corridor linking Estalagem, in Viana district on the Luanda-Viana expressway, to 11 de Novembro Stadium, extending along the Luanda peripheral road and ending along Lar do Patriota at Futungo II road. (macauhub/AO/BR)
