WCN Editorial Team 13 Jan 2017 AFRICA BUILDINGS

A consortium of Van Oord and Urbeinveste Projectos Imobili√°rios has won a contract from the Angolan government for the Marginal da Corimba project in Luanda, Angola.

Under the project, an area of 400ha will be reclaimed along the coast of Luanda and will be protected by various rock revetments and breakwaters. The rock required for the project will be procured from local quarries.

Van Oord will deploy various dredging equipment on the project, which is expected to be complete in mid-2019.

The new area will serve the purpose for the construction of the Marginal da Corimba highway, future fishery port, marina and real estate development.

The scheme aims to revitalize the area of Samba, Corimba and Futungo de Belas, with the purpose of improving the quality of life of the population. It will also contribute to improve accessibility to the city of Luanda.
