Last three chinese trains already arrived in the country

The country received, this Monday, the last three trains of a total of 10 purchased by the Government from China, in 2020. These new locomotives will reinforce the Luanda Railway (CFL), thus joining the " another four that already circulate” in the capital.


The information was provided by Alberto Quengue, administrator for Operations at the National Agency for Land Transport (ANTT), who reiterated that these new means will not only improve Luanda's urban mobility, but also connect, in the future, the city center to the new international airport Dr. Antonio Agostinho Neto.

Cited by Angop, the official, speaking at the reception ceremony of the locomotives, explained that these last trains will join the four already existing and in circulation in the capital: "These three units will join the other four that already circulate in Luanda and bring with them maintenance kits for the next two years of operations".

The administrator also mentioned that the trains are modern and 'environmentally friendly'.

The locomotives consist of four carriages, with the possibility of transporting 696 people. These diesel trains (called Diesel Multiple Unit - DMU) were acquired from China's CRRC, in a purchase that cost 1.2 billion kwanzas from the state coffers, writes Angop.

According to Angop, of the ten trains purchased from China, seven will serve the CFL while the remaining three will run on the Benguela Railway (CFB).
