Minister of Public Works, Housing and Water Resources, João Machatine, says that detours aiming at facilitating the passage of people and goods along the Nhamantanda-Beira section of National Road Number Six (EN6) will be identified in the next few days.
Machatine was speaking after being informed about forecasts for an improvement in the weather over the next few days, and having asked the company contracted for the rehabilitation and improvement of EN6 to carry out emergency work in order to guarantee assistance can reach displaced families in the city of Beira.
Machatine visited Haluma village, Nhamatanda district, Sofala, on Monday, and witnessed the hundreds of families seeking shelter and vehicles immobilised in the road by collapsed bridges and roads blocked as a result of Cyclone Idai and the heavy rains that have fallen in the region.
With access to the city of Beira via the EN6 cut, the minister wants to solve the problem as soon as possible in order to avoid still more suffering.
