The company, in a statement sent to VerAngola, informs that it signed, this Monday, the consignment of the contract.
In this way, the company, which says it remains committed "to expanding the construction of infrastructure and public works in Angola", will begin the rehabilitation work on the section of EN 230, which connects Catete and Maria Teresa, which will now "have 11 meters wide road, two lanes, each 3.5 meters and two-meter shoulders in each direction".
The company will carry out "earthworks, paving, drainage and horizontal and vertical signage", the note states.
During the course of the work, the company reports that around 500 jobs will be created. "During the course of this project, more than 500 direct and indirect jobs will be created, with completion expected to take 18 months", the note reads.
It should be noted that the project will allow motorists to "have better traffic conditions on the EN 230", as well as "greater and better circulation of people and goods".
According to the company, the aforementioned road "is an important link between" Luanda and the provinces of Cuanza Norte, Malanje, Lunda Norte, Lunda Sul and Moxico. "In addition to being a West/East connection axis, it is also an important route that connects regions of large agricultural production located in Cuanza Sul, thus standing out as a structuring route for interconnection between the different regions of the country", the statement said.
The consignment ceremony was attended by the Minister of Construction and Public Works, Carlos Alberto da Silva, the governor of Luanda, Manuel Homem, as well as the administrator of Icolo and Bengo, Nelson Funete, and the general director of INEA, Henriques Victorino.
