Road concessions launched in Mozambique from April 2020

Road concessions launched in Mozambique from April 2020

The concession of Mozambique’s national road sections to private operators is expected to take place in April 2020, said the director-general of the National Roads Administration (ANE), quoted by Mozambican daily newspaper Notícias.

César Macuácua also said that analysis of the technical and financial proposals submitted by national and foreign companies, in the international public tender launched last August, is ongoing.

The sections in question are Marracuene/Xai-Xai, on National Road Number 1 (EN1), which is 185 kilometres long, Matola/Boane/Namaacha, on EN2 (65.9 kilometres), Impaputo/Goba, on EN3 (31 kilometres), Nampula/Namialo/Lúrio/Metoro on EN1 and Nacala/Namialo on EN12, which are both 415 kilometres long.

The Director-General of the ANE stated that the concession contracts will be valid for a maximum of 30 years.

The management of almost the entire Mozambican road network is ensured by the government through the ANE, which, faced with a shortage of funds, often fails to meet the recommended maintenance schedule, which leads to the poor condition of many roads in the country.

EN4, which connects Maputo to South Africa, was handed over in May 1997 to Trans African Concessions (TRAC) for 30 years, the company that paid for its construction, ensures its maintenance and charges tolls on the road.
