Mozambique seeks financing for roads

26 August 2015

Mozambique’s National Roads Administration (ANE) is seeking funds to improve main roads accessing the Nacala Special Economic Zone, said its director-general, Atanásio Mugunhe.

Plans call for improving traffic conditions and merchandise inflow/outflow via the port and the international airport, he specified in comments to the Maputo daily Notícias.

During a conference on investment in the SEZs recently held in Nacala, Mugunhe announced that the necessary funds had been gathered to pave the road between the cities of Cuamba and Lichinga in Niassa province.

He also stated that the ANE is seeking funds to pave the road between Memba and Alua, which will shorten the distance between Nacala and Pemba.

“We are beginning the engineering plan for the Nampula/Nametil section, where work should begin in 2016, and are seeking financing for the Nametil/Angoche and Nametil/Moma sections. The project is part of efforts to improve transit in the Nacala SEZ,” the ANE director-general added. (Macauhub/MZ)
