Construction Minister to inagurate "Ponte Molhada" bridge

Luanda - The minister of Construction Waldemar Pires Alexandre is inaugurating Friday the bridge that replaced the "Ponte Molhada" one connecting the neighbourhoods of Benfica and Talatona in Luanda.

The information is contained in a press release from the Constuction of Ministry that reached Angop on Thursday.

According to the note the new bridge is 11 metres wide and 200 long.

Built as an alternative route between former Benfica and Futungo de Belas neighbourhoods, the bridge was often placed out of use for safety, especially during rain seasons.
