South Africa: Maputo-Catembe Bridge a Historic Development

Cabinet has congratulated the South African engineers involved in the historic development of the longest suspension bridge in Africa.

The Maputo-Catembe Bridge was built by the China Road and Bridge Corporation and connects Maputo in Mozambique and KwaZulu-Natal.

Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi inaugurated the 3km long Maputo-Catembe Bridge earlier this month.

"This development will stimulate trade and tourism between Mozambique and South Africa, with travel time between Maputo to Kosi Bay in KwaZulu-Natal's East Coast border post drastically reduced from six hours to 90 minutes," said Cabinet in a statement on Thursday following an ordinary meeting this week.

The bridge was built over four years at a cost of US$785 million.
