Chinese company to build new bridge over Save river in Mozambique

20 August 2018

The China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC) will build a new bridge over the Save River in Inhambane province, Mozambique.


The Minister of Public Works Housing and Water Resources, Joao Machatine told Radio Moçambique that the new bridge will be financed by the government of Mozambique and by China.


The construction of the bridge represents an investment of approximately US$100 million, or the equivalent of 5.9 billion meticais.


The new bridge over the Save should be completed by the end of 2021, the minister said.


The CBRC is building a metal bridge that will be ready by November of this year and will be used while the current bridge, built in the 1970s, is being rebuilt and the new one is under construction. (macauhub)
