The Construction minister, Artur Fortunato, the general director of the Angolan Institute of Roads (INEA), Antonio Resende, during an assessment visit to the rehabilitation sites, said Wednesday that the connection between Benguela and Luanda by the National Road 100 is crucial to traffic, benefiting surrounding areas.
The official said that the works will involve widening of the road, construction of hydraulic systems and protection of slope, safety barriers, signaling and paving.
On the other hand, some corrections will be made to the road from a technical point of view, such as improving some curves and slopes, in order to make the road more comfortable for drivers.
According to him, the road was too narrow, which was one of the reasons for the high death toll in the region.
In these first months of works, over 1000 jobs have been created.
