This was confirmed Monday, to Angop, by the director of the local Office of Technical Services and Infrastructure, Francisco António Joaquim Neto, who announced the arrival this month of the equipment, which will also serve for conservation and maintenance of the roads, as well as the opening of secondary and tertiary roads.

He said they are equipment provided by the Ministry of Construction and Public Works, such as bulldozers, graders, excavators, cylinders, sheepskin, brushcutters, loaders, compactors, among others.

The official informed that, at this time, the technicians who will handle this equipment are already available, lacking only the financial component for the creation of the logistic conditions that allow the intervention of the main ravines and the maintenance of the road network of Huambo province.
