Road refurbishment in the Angolan province of Kwanza Sul


Merely ten percent of the around 56,000 kilometers of road in Angola are surfaced. As a result of the civil war (1975 - 2002), almost all surfaced roads and around 75% of non-surfaced roads are damaged or can no longer be used, and around two thirds of all bridges were destroyed during that time. Travel remains difficult, especially trips inland. With the help of a comprehensive refurbishment and construction plan, Angola's government built around 5,300 kilometers of new roads between 2002 and the end of 2008. By 2011, this figure is to total 14,000 kilometers. The INEA, "Instituto Nacional de Estradas de Angola", is responsible for road planning in Angola.


The "Kwanza Sul road construction" project is the most comprehensive infrastructure project ever to be commissioned to GAUFF Engineering in Angola. It involves the refurbishment of the following roads and road sections:

1. Sumbe – Seles – Conda – Gabela   Length: 146 kilometers
2. Seles – Amboiva – Cassongue (Cruzamento)   Length: 152 kilometers
3. Condé – Ebo   Length: 22 kilometers
4. Gabela – Quilenda   Length: 30 kilometers
Total   Length: 427 kilometers

The roads are being largely built on the existing road structures. Special measures are foreseen to avoid erosion when road routing is changed.
