Luanda — The resumption of the commuters and cargo train services in different provinces, linking the cities of Kuito, Huambo, Lobito and Luena has been making significant contributions to the socioeconomic development of the regions, such as the central Bie Province.
The resumption of the train service has brought about significant improvements in the people's lives, causing the reduction of transportation prices of goods.
The train service connecting the provinces of Benguela, Huambo and Bié was interrupted for 34 years, due to the civil conflict that swept the country.
The recovery of the Benguela Railway (CFB), which was a public investment, has brought about immeasurable benefits for the citizens and boosted the region's development.
In Bie Province, thirteen stations were rehabilitated by the governmental authorities, namely in the localities of Chinguar, Cutato, Capeio, Cunhinga, Cunje, Chipeta, Catabola, Camacupa, Kwanza, Cueli, Cuiva, Cuemba and Munhango.
The works of rehabilitating the Benguela Railway (CFB) service (which covers the provinces of Benguela, Huambo and Bie) started in the year 2008.
