21 January 2016

The rehabilitation and asphalting of the Cuamba-Lichinga road, in Niassa province in northern Mozambique, over a distance of 300 kilometres, will begin this year, said provincial Governor Arlindo Chilundo.

The work will be co-financed by the African Development Bank (ADB) and Japan, in the amount of US$300 million.

The Cuamba-Lichinga road, which is part of the Nacala corridor, is divided into three sections of 100 kilometes each.

The first two sections, to be financed by the ADB, include the connection from the district of Cuamba to Mwita and from this point to Massangulo.

By the end of March the work will be awarded to a contractor following a public tender. (macauhub/MZ)
