The capital currently has 49 routes. However, Amadeu Campos, director of the Transport, Traffic and Urban Mobility Directorate of the LPG, informed that the government of Luanda is already proceeding with the restructuring of the routes and that the works are almost finished.
The restructuring plan also includes the erection of new terminals and passenger shelters.
Furthermore, the LPG also foresees, for this year, the reactivation of the commissions with a view to continuing the finalization of the exclusive lanes for buses and taxis – which aim to facilitate the circulation of buses –, revealed Amadeu Campos, speaking to Angop.
He made it known that at the time the project was abandoned, in 2017, that the lanes of Avenida 21 de Janeiro and the direct road to Samba were practically finished.
According to Angop, six exclusive lanes are planned, namely Avenida Deolinda Rodrigues, Fidel Castro, the main one in Cacuaco and Pedro de Castro, at an early stage.
Luanda currently has 357 buses and, according to the official, they transport around 11 million passengers monthly, with more than 1,000 buses expected to reach a two-year time horizon.
