Marracuene-Macaneta Road is Already in Use

The Minister of Public Works, Housing and Water Resources, Carlos Mesquita, inaugurated last Friday, November 18, the road linking the district capital of Marracuene to the locality of Macaneta, with an extension of 8.42 kilometers, which cost about 462 million of meticais, financed by the Mozambique Road Network (REVIMO), concessionaire of the road.

Carlos Mesquita said on the occasion that the road will allow the circulation of people and goods in a safe, comfortable and permanent way, as well as reduce the travel time between Macaneta and Marracuene, and dynamize the local economy, in particular, and the district in general.

“We are certain that the road built and paved will certainly make the products produced here (vegetables, bulbs, bananas, among others) more competitive in the market, in terms of quality and prices, and not only. It will, equally, impact all the other economic and social activities developed here, due to the easier circulation between the coast and the interior”, considered the governor.

In the tourism component, Mesquita referred that the infrastructure opens new business opportunities that can transform Macaneta into a tourist destination of excellence with its sublime and exotic beaches, “benefiting from its proximity to the main ports and airports in the region.

According to the minister, the use of that road will obey the “user-pays” principle as a way to ensure the generation of resources that, at the very least, guarantee the maintenance of the infrastructure, the provision of assistance to users in case of emergency, and the construction of more roads, among other benefits. 

“It opens new business opportunities that can transform Macaneta into a tourist destination of excellence with its sublime and exotic beaches, benefiting from its proximity to major ports and airports in the region”

For her part, the Secretary of State in Maputo Province, Vitória Diogo, called for greater collaboration, by the local population and users, in the payment of fees as a way to ensure that the road benefits from maintenance to ensure its longevity.

 “I would urge road users to observe the speed limits so that the road does not become a stage for traffic accidents and deaths,” he said.

In his turn, REVIMO’s PCA, Constantino Gode, stressed that the work translates the company’s mission, which is to invest and participate in the management of infrastructure, products and integrated services, contributing to the creation of value and sustainable development of the locations connected by the road network under its management.

Once the road is completed and inaugurated, he added that “the biggest challenge ahead of us is to follow up on actions aimed at capitalizing on the range of opportunities that result from this infrastructure.”
