    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, 22 November following an ordinary meeting this week.

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