Mozambique: Future Looks Great for Maputo Port

The Macauhub reports that three investment projects to expand basic infrastructures in the port of Maputo should be completed this year, according to the schedule approved for the respective 2012-2030 development programme.

These projects include enlarging the port’s main access gate, through which over 600 trucks pass every day on their way to and from the various terminals, transporting cargo in transit and to neighbouring countries.

According to the Macauhub, another ongoing investment at the port is budgeted at US$2 million and involves conducting a study on eventual renovation of docks at the port terminals.

The recent completion of dredging work in the access channel, whose maximum depth is now 12 metres, means the port is now able to receive large-tonnage ships. But new infrastructure is required to handle such vessels.
