Extension of Concession Contract to TRAC Constraints Start of Projects on the N4

Trans African Concession (TRAC-Mocambique) says that the start of widening, rehabilitation, maintenance and modernisation work on some sections along the Maputo development corridor is conditioned by the renewal of the concession contract which expires on 28 February 2028.

According to an article made public this Friday, 5 July, by the Agência de Informação de Moçambique, this is the concession resulting from the bidding process, awarded to TRAC, through the National Roads Administration (ANE) and SARNAL, both institutions representing the states of Mozambique and South Africa, at the time led by Joaquim Chissano and Nelson Mandela.

According to the agency, the concessionaire for the Maputo development corridor has work to do on the Moamba-Ressano Garcia section and Matola Rio (urban area), where it is planned to build service roads, lay new layers of asphalt and carriageways, among other actions, with the aim of modernising the arteries.

The director of TRAC-Mozambique, Fenias Mazive, explained that the concession followed the BOT (Build Operate and Transfer) model, which allows TRAC to promote projects, finance and manage them. At the end of the contract, it must transfer the infrastructure to the government through ANE.
The project, launched in 1997, has an estimated budget of 10.3 billion meticals (three billion rand) and aims, among other things, to stimulate economic development between South Africa’s inland provinces (Gauteng, Limpopo, Mpumalanga) and Mozambique, with exports via the Port of Maputo. 41.2 kilometres of roads remain to be rehabilitated, with the completion of the Moamba and Maputo tolls in 2024. These are already contributing 18 per cent of revenues.
Fenias Mazive revealed that the Moamba toll has increased traffic, registering 79 lorries a day in 2002 compared to 2685 lorries a day today.
