Portugal’s Mota-Engil selected to work on construction project in Angola’s capital

5 May 2015

The Mota-Engil construction company has been chosen by the Angolan government to carry out the first phase of the Plan for Revitalisation of Roads in Luanda, worth almost US$84 million, according to a presidential order.

The work involves repairing road surfaces, pavements, curbs and gutters within the Luanda urban area, “in order to improve the movement of people and goods,” providing a “higher quality of life” to the population.

The first phase of this plan is estimated to cost about US$83.4 million and the presidential authorisation validates the award of the contract to Mota-Engil, which will sign the contract with the Luanda provincial government.

The province of Luanda currently has a population of about 6.5 million of a total of 24.3 million inhabitants in Angola. (macauhub/AO/PT)
