The work on a stretch of 7.8 kilometres was delivered to the China Railway 20 (CR20) group.


According to the Angolan press, the project was launched on Thursday by Angola’s Minister of Construction and Public Works, Manuel Tavares de Almeida, and also includes the construction of a viaduct at the intersection of the southwest road with the Samba road and a pedestrian bridge.


Corimba’s Coastal Road Project is included in the Public Investment Programme and in the proposal for a law on the General State Budget (OGE) for 2018.


The project of the new Luanda coastal road, south of the Angolan capital is one of the big public projects planned in Angola country and the initial phase was completed four years ago.


The work was handed over to the Corimba Coastal Road Development Company (SDMC), with the proposal presented by the company for the urban development of that area. (macauhub)
