Luanda – Road traffic opened Friday on the newly built flyover that connects the Luanda Marginal Avenue to Luanda Island and Dr. Agostinho Neto Avenue, in the capital, following its inauguration by the head of State, José Eduardo dos Santos.
Called the “Kianda” flyover, the infrastructure is comprised of three lanes for each direction
and was built in eight months.
According to the consortium that built the flyover, the infrastructure was designed to the most
sophisticated standards of international engineering and security rules.
The 100-metre flyover was built over a point of intersection between the Luanda city and
Luanda Island and is expected to ease traffic road in the normally jammed area.
Accompanied by the first lady, Ana Paula dos Santos, the head of State drove around the
flyover that is part of a Luanda Bay facelift project.
The ceremony of inauguration was witnessed by Government members, MPs, presentatives
of the local authorities and of the civil society, including business people.
