China Railway 20 builds new Luanda coastal road

The China Railway 20 Bureau Group (CR20) has been contracted by the Angolan government to build the new south-western Luanda coastal road that will improve traffic flow between the city centre and the south of the province of Luanda, Angolan news agency Angop reported.

The new 8-kilometre coastal road costing US$142.3 million will be completed by early 2019.

The coastal road, known locally as the marginal road, will link the coastal area, Luanda’s southern area and Avenida Marginal 4 de Fevereiro.

The government awarded the work to the Chinese company after cancelling its existing contract with Brazil’s Odebrecht, which was previously involved in building the Luanda coastal road.

Construction will involve about 2,000 workers and, in addition to two lanes in each direction, the road will have an area for future creation of exclusive lanes for public transport.
