Construction of the junction between the Maputo Ring Road and the National Road Number Four (EN4) in Tchumene, in the Mozambican province of Maputo, is proceeding smoothly and should be completed in six months.
The work is being approached on two fronts – roads and bridge structures – and were, as of last week, 40.2 percent complete, according to Basílio Nzunga, one of those responsible for the ring road and Maputo-Catembe bridge and connecting roads, Noticias reports.
After some time of uncertainty due to disagreements with Trans African Concessions (TRAC), the construction of the Tchumene junction got underway in earnest at the start of the year.
Construction has proceeded rapidly, and drivers say the new road will bring many advantages, allowing people to connect through to many destinations in less time and at less expense.
Machines running at the site of the future Tchumene intersection are giving the work renewed impetus. The project initially suffered multiple setbacks, including an impasse in negotiations with residents and businesses located in the area and the difficulty of reaching an understanding with the EN4 concessionaire regarding the flow of cars on the Matola-Maputo toll road.
