Zambézia: Road Fund to Disburse 13M Meticals for Rehabilitation of Access Roads

The Municipal Council of Quelimane, in Zambezia province, will spend 13 million meticals from the Roads Fund this year to rehabilitate four access roads in pavement, asphalt and earthworks, Rádio Moçambique reported on Tuesday, 19 March.

The agency explains that the rehabilitation will consist of plugging potholes, removing and laying new asphalt in some critical points and laying paving.

Plácido Sabonete, the Quelimane City Council councillor for Infrastructure and Urbanisation, explained that the interventions are aimed at minimising the deterioration of some access roads and assured that the funds have already been transferred to the municipality.

Quelimane is a city that has been suffering serious road degradation problems. In another development, Plácido Sabonete, quoted by the newspaper O País on 6 February, explained that work was already underway to asphalt some of the city’s avenues.

“The lot includes Max Love Avenue, part of Josina Machel, Mao-Tsé-Tung and 1001 Street. Work is also underway to lay gravel on Dr Aldo Marchezine Street, specifically in the Santagua neighbourhood, past administrative post number four. We’re going to improve the pavement and lay some aqueducts to make the road passable efficiently,” said the source, adding that around 97 million meticais will be spent on emergency road works, with funding from the World Bank.
