    Client: Instituto de Estradas de Angola (INEA)

    Project start: 2007


Construction management to the refurbishment of urban roads in Caxito, Uíge and Negage


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 commissioned around 5,300 kilometers of road to be built between 2002 and the end of 2008. By 2011, this figure is to total 14,000 kilometres. The INEA, "Instituto Nacional de Estradas de Angola", is responsible for planning transport in Angola.


The contract involved refurbishment of the urban roads in three cities in the provinces of Uíge (Uíge and Negage) and Bengo (Caxito). The works included refurbishment or construction of large hewn stones, execution of surface drainage, refurbishment or construction of pavement and refurbishment or construction of urban roads, applying a bituminous layer of 5 cm.

The city of Caxito, capital of the province Bengo, is located on the Dande River, about 30 kilometres away from Angola's capital city of Luanda. The total length of the refurbished urban roads in Caxito was 20 km.

The city of Uíge is the capital of the province with the same name and is located 317 kilometres to the north east of Luanda. The total length of the refurbished urban roads in Caxito was 22 km.

The city of Negage is located in the province of Uíge, about 37 kilometres to the north east of the provincial capital with the same name. The total length of the refurbished urban roads in Negage was 10 km.
