The brigades are comprised by 20 brigade agents each, which will carry out work on 25 kilometers of road, and the work consists of clearing berms, ditches and drainage ditches, slopes, hole- prevention and replacement of horizontal and vertical signaling.
The brigade’s agents will also have the mission to detect the emergence of ravines, one of the phenomena of deterioration of the roads in short time of their useful life.
Roughly 160 former unemployed soldiers and young people, recruited in the communities based near the roads are part of the maintenance teams.
According to the road fund technical director, Simão Tomé, who was speaking to journalists, the works will be chaired by a local contractor, who will also be responsible for managing the brigades.
