Guys, anyone can Google translate German. As always someone makes a suggestion (a pertinent one) and you just succeed in thrashing his country for no apparent reason and calling it shite. Well, the issue here is standard gauge vs. narrow gauge, and pointing out the obvious shouldn't prompt these kinds of responses. If anything, at least respect the forum.

Ich will ihm halt einfach net´ recht gebe´...der kotzt mich einfach nur an!

Na ja, hoffe Dir geht es soweit ganz gut

Und ich hoffe wir kommen noch mal eines Tages zu unserem Bier.

some great news

Rail link from Angola to Namibia, Zambia and DR Congo completed in 2014

Luanda, Angola, 25 Aug – The project to interconnect the three railways from Angola to Namibia, Zambia and the Democratic Republic of Congo may be completed in 2014, Angola’s RNA national radio reported, citing a government source.

The Transport Ministry’s infrastructure director, Carla Marques, said the three lines’ connections to the neighbouring countries would be finished by 2012, RNA reported.

In the scope of regional integration, new ports will also be built in Cabinda and at Barra do Dande in Bengo province, 50 km north of Luanda, Marques said.

“As soon as construction of the Barra do Dande port begins, work will begin on the branch line connecting the Luanda railroad to that port. And we want rail interconnections to each of the ports – Luanda, Lobito and Namibe,” she added.

Completion of those projects, probably by 2014, will facilitate the interconnection with Zambia, DR Congo and Namibia and the outflow of products from those three countries, Marques said. (macauhub)

also Angola: Railroad to link Namibe port to Walvis Bay in Namibia

Angola: Railroad to link Namibe port to Walvis Bay in Namibia

Luanda, Angola, 3 Jan – Angolan and Namibian technicians are working on a project to build a railroad linking the ports of Walvis Bay (Namibia) and Namibe (Angola), according to website Angola Acontece.

According to the report on the site, the two countries plan for goods that go to Namibia by boat from Angola from Namibe port to be taken there by rail instead, and the same would happen for products leaving Walvis Bay for Angola.

There are also common projects for the two countries, namely in the agricultural and electricity sectors. The Kalweke dam, in Namibia, will electrify the areas of Onjiva and Xangongo in Cunene province, and Matala, Gahama and Lubango in Huila province and the port of Namibe, all in the south of Angola.

For the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) there is a long term integrated electrification project, in the so called western corridor, based on the Inga hydroelectric dam (Democratic Republic of the Congo), linking Angola, South Africa, Botswana and Namibia.

An Eastern corridor is also planned which will travel from Inga to Lumbumbashi (south of the DR Congo) to Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and South Africa.

The projects are part of a more ambitious program and in the long term are part of the plans of the New Partnership for African Economic Development (Nepad), which also includes construction of airports, ports, railroads, joint exploration of water, agricultural, flora, fauna and road resources.

Caminhos-de-ferro
Reinaugurado tráfego ferroviário interurbano Lobito-Benguela



Com a circulação do comboio a população poderá reduzir custos de transportação

Benguela – O ministro dos Transportes, Augusto da Silva Tomás, reinaugurou, segunda-feira, a circulação ferroviária entre o município de Benguela e Lobito, ambos situados na província costeira de Benguela, região sul de Angola.

O reinício da circulação ferroviária foi precedido da inauguração das novas carruagens, efectuada pelo titular da pasta dos Transportes, e de uma bênção apostólica dada pelo bispo da Igreja Católica em Benguela, Dom Eugénio Del Corso.

A circulação ferroviária interurbana entre as duas circunscrições estava interrompida desde 2002, por força do conflito armado, e as obras de reabilitação iniciaram em 2006.

Augusto da Silva Tomás anunciou, na ocasião, que o Caminho-de-Ferro de Benguela (CFB) ligara a província do Moxico, Leste de Angola, em 2012, passando pelas províncias do Huambo e Bié, centro sul do país.

“ Deste modo, abrimos uma nova página na história dos Caminhos-de-Ferro de Benguela e este conectará o país com o exterior pela via-férrea, isto é, com a República da Zâmbia e RD Congo”, referiu o ministro.

O governante aludiu no seu discurso a necessidade dos cidadãos conservarem o novo meio posto à disposição para que sirva a população e seja duradoiro.

Disse também que o transporte ferroviário vai ajudar a minimizar os custos de produção na região assim como transportará passageiros a preço não superior a 30 kwanzas. Já que o preço da corrida de táxi Benguela-Lobito vice-versa custa 150 kwanzas.

Por outro lado, Augusto da Silva Tomás referiu que, além do comboio, a província de Benguela já beneficiou de 130 autocarros para transporte interurbano de pessoas e 104 viaturas para transportar cargas

O CFB foi criado em 1903.

As maiores felicidades para este projecto que espero que traga uma melhoria na circulação dentro do país e melhor segurança! Parabéns a todos aqueles que trabalharam neste projecto e um excelente trabalho para aqueles que continuam a trabalhar para que toda a extensão da linha funcione! Já agora, boa sorte aos funcionários que carinhosamente vão fazer com que todos os passageiros se sintam bem a usar o comboio!

Presidente de Angola reinaugura Caminhos de Ferro de Benguela no Huambo
África
30/08/11, 13:05
OJE/Lusa
O presidente angolano, José Eduardo dos Santos, fez hoje um percurso de cerca de três quilómetros, entre a estação São Pedro e estação principal da província do Huambo, inaugurando assim oficialmente o troço ferroviário entre Benguela e o Huambo.

O presidente e a primeira-dama, Ana Paula dos Santos, e a comitiva de ministros que o acompanha fizeram a viagem no comboio com centenas de populares, que se mostraram satisfeitos com o início da operacionalidade deste troço da ferrovia e com a presença do chefe de Estado angolano.

O presidente realizou uma visita à estação de Huambo, totalmente reabilitada, no âmbito do programa de reparação dos Caminhos de Ferro de Benguela, que deverá estar concluído em 2012, quando o comboio chegar à província do Moxico, leste de Angola.

De acordo com o programa oficial, José Eduardo dos Santos inaugurará igualmente o aeroporto local, estando previsto também um comício no Huambo, província que não visita desde 2008.

O troço hoje inaugurado é de 350 quilómetros, ligando as províncias de Benguela e Huambo.

Este troço, inoperacional desde a década de 1980, altura do reacender do conflito armado em Angola, volta a funcionar depois de obras de reabilitação executadas com financiamentos chineses.

Os Caminhos de Ferro de Benguela têm mais de 112 anos de história e 1.300 quilómetros, ligando a cidade de Lobito (Benguela) a Luau (Moxico).

Olá. Acompanho com interesse histórico a recuperação do CFB, já que um conhecido meu esteve em Angola a serviço da ONU em missão de paz, em Kuito. Trouxe muitas fotos inclusive dos trabalhos de engenharia de desminagem na região da cidade e que incluem imagens do CFB. Alguém que acompanha por aí as obras pode informar o andamento da recuperação do trecho Huambo-Kuito e para quando se prevê o retorno da circulação dos comboios entre essas cidades?

Even though I think it was a BIG, BIG, mistake not to make standard gauge railways, i like everything else they have done, the stations, the staff, the trains, all look professional and
