Auto-estrada N'zeto - Soyo, Angola

17 August

The 150 kilometer long Auto-estrada N'zeto - Soyo opened to traffic along the coast of Northern Angola. It is a four lane highway, it runs through an area where only unpaved roads existed before.

Soyo is a port city on the mouth of the Congo River, at the DRC border. It is the center of the Angolan oil industry. Construction of the motorway started in 2009 but was halted for some time due to the low oil prices. It was resumed later and is now open to traffic. Some sources indicate only one carriageway opened, with the second to be opened in December.

It is unclear if the motorway has any grade-separated interchanges, there are virtually no other roads in this area. It is quoted as a '9-bridge motorway'. Google Earth shows some of the early stages of construction but lacks recent satellite imagery of that area.

Kertosono-Mojokerto Expwy Section 2


President Joko Widodo pressed the infamous "inauguration siren trigger" to mark the inauguration of Section 2 of the Kertosono-Mojokerto Expressway (operated by a subsidiary of Astra Infra), in the Mojokerto toll plaza, today. The Minister for Public Works and Housing, Basuki Hadimuljono, was also at the inauguration. Section 2 connected Sections 1 and 3 this 40.5km expressway, part of the Trans-Java Expressway System.

Section 4 is under construction and is now about 96% built.

As Jokowi said, "this expressway should have been built since 1996 but lack of state support and land clearing problems made the expressway opened today".
