Minister of Public Works announces recovery of roads in the south of the country

The roads in the south of the country will be recovered, announced the Minister of Public Works, Urban Planning and Housing, Carlos Santos, who was speaking this Wednesday as part of the visit of the President of the Republic to Huíla.


On the occasion, the minister said that there was "the express commitment to improve the section" that connects Benguela and Lubango.

"Today there was an express commitment to improve the section of the Benguela-Lubango connection, which is very critical. We are mobilizing the financial aspects, we already have the technical solution and soon after we have the conditions we will make it public to say when the work will start, when it ends, the priority extensions of the work itself", said the minister, quoted by Rádio Nacional de Angola (RNA).

Carlos Santos also said that, in addition to the Benguela-Lubango section, they also intended to guarantee the Cacula-Cusse connection.

"In addition to that, we also want to secure the other connection Cacula-Cusse, a privileged connection here to our province of Huambo and normally ensure the best connections to the province of Namibe, the province of Benguela – which is the case – and the province of Cuando Cubango, through national road 280," he said.

"These will be the priorities for now in our sector. Today National Road 230 is a strong priority, it has been our focus, a privileged connection of 625 kilometers of road from Malanje to Saurimo and we are on a good path, we intend to do it every month a visit to that work and so that within the programs we can reach the end of this work", completed the holder of the portfolio of Public Works, Urbanism and Housing, quoted by RNA.

It should be noted that Lubango will have an external ring road, whose construction is taking place in the province of Huíla and should be completed next year.

"A road is under construction in the province of Huíla that will relieve the pressure of road traffic on the center of Lubango, preventing circulation to the south and north of this territory without the need to enter the city", refers a note from the Presidency of the Republic, to which VerAngola had access.

The circular, adds the note, will have "a total of approximately 40 kilometers and should be completed in the year 2024".
