[ANG] Angola | road infrastructure • Estradas Angolanas

Map:



Road Network
total: 52,429 km
paved: 5,349 km
unpaved: 46,080 km (2001)

What I find interesting about this country, is that some roads have South African signage and some have Portuguese signage

I'm sure that you're getting the idea of from where these come from.

Angola is developing fast, and I think that we shall see more growth within the road network in the next few years.

I am a bit confused about the colour of the directional road signs in Angola. Over the posts, I have seen them in white, green and blue backgrounds, for roads that seem to me to be of the same class. Is there any codification?

As far as I can see, some roads are done to South African specifications and have green road directional signs in a SA style and some are done to Portuguese specifications (which uses white for N roads) and are in a Portuguese style.

I can't understand... is Angola changing its road directional signs to ZA's style or they want to have/to keep the Pt style. In Mozambique, ZA, Swaziland, Namibia, etc, it's all ZA style.

I think that in Cape Verde they follow the Portuguese road signs' style.

In Angola it seems to be a bit of a mix, perhaps depending on contractor but the new motorways seem to have Portuguese style singage.

The non-directional signage in towns 9maybe not outside towns if the builders use South African signage) such as stop signs are certainly the same or very similar to Portuguese ones

Pleasantly surprised at the high level of the roads there. I was expecting it to be all laderite roads. This seems to be at the same level as much of South America.

Agree! Wondering why they use both South African and Portuguese road signage though.

In more recent years many (all?) SADC countries have switched over to using South African signage. They may even be made in the RSA. However, as is the case in many lower-income countries there isn't the money to follow the signage guidelines fully everywhere.

In Angola's case, they seem to be installing Portuguese-style signs too, so maybe they are using one type for one type of road and another for others.

I can't see relationship between the use of ones and use of others by this photos. Seems to be random.
