Africa-Press – Angola. The Angolan State will spend 11 billion kwanzas to plug three ravines in Lunda Norte province, after the assignment of the contract took place Saturday, in Dundo.

These are the ravines of the Centrality of Mussungue, the Kamaquenzo neighborhood and Tanda (along National Road 2025).

The Mussungue Centrality ravine, which threatens to destroy buildings in zone 1, will be stabilized and stopped within 12 months, and will cost 5 billion kwanzas.

The Tanda 2 ravine, along National Road 225, which connects Lunda Norte to the country’s coast, will also be completed in a year and will cost the state coffers around 4 billion kwanzas.

These two works are in charge of the company AFA VIAS.

The ravine in the Kamaquenzo neighbourhood, with around one thousand square metres, will cost two billion kwanzas and will have an execution period of one year, having been awarded to the company 7 Cunhas.

Given the level of progression and to facilitate the undertaking, the government plans to evacuate 25 families living along the ravine in the Kamaquenzo neighbourhood.

The ravine, in addition to threatening homes, endangers the road that connects the Centrality of Mussunge to the urban district of Dundo, as well as the runway at Kamaquenzo Airport.

In the act of consignment, the Minister of Public Works and Housing, Carlos Santos, called on contractors to comply with the deadlines established in the contract.

He said that the project is part of the plan for emergency works and the containment of ravines in the country and added that 742 ravines are catalogued, of which 84 in Lunda Norte need urgent intervention.
