The marginal will be implemented in the south of Luanda bay, more specifically in the Corimba district, in the Samba district. The project will be built in an area of 255 hectares: 40 land hectares, which already exist, and the remaining hectares will be achieved with maritime landfill.
According to Angop, the works on the project will start in January 2023, will be divided into two phases and will be carried out within a time frame of 13 years.
Regarding the first phase of the contract, Yuan Chunkun, representative of the Chinese consortium in Angola, explained that it will take three years to be completed and concerns the completion of the maritime landfill. As for the second phase, the official informed that this will take ten years to be completed and concerns the construction of infrastructure and final details of the project.

Speaking on the sidelines of the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the CRBC and the Private Investment and Export Promotion Agency (AIPEX), the official said that in January he would start the round of negotiations with the Government, in obedience to the program set out in the memorandum of understanding.
"CRBC guarantees investment and its total financing, based on its financial capacity, with the partnership of Chinese banks", he revealed.
António Henriques da Silva, chairman of the Board of Directors of AIPEX, said that the marginal project is completely private and that the State plays only a facilitating role.

Public services, offices, residences, hotels, cultural, sports and leisure areas, among others, will be some of the infrastructures that will be part of the Urban Project of Marginal da Corimba.
