The Urban Man
Avenue Colonel Mondjiba enlargement will certainly be the most spectacular road modernization undertaken in Kinshasa so far. It is going to be a two-level road from Socimat (end of Boulevard du 30 Juin) to Kintambo Magasin (about 3 kilometres). On the ground level, the current 1x1 road will be enlarged to 2x3 instead of the initially planned 3x3 in order to avoid land expropriation. Above, a 3km long flyover (2x2) will be constructed. The feasibility study is already done and the Agence Congolaise des Grands Travaux is waiting for the government’s go-ahead to start the construction work. In the meantime, they have already proceeded with tree cutting as seen in the pictures below.
