Angola, Moxico Province, May 2006

Work on the metallic bridge over the Lungué Bungo River, in Moxico Province is in the final stage of construction. The 60 metre free-span bridge was erected by Swedish Rescue Services Agency and the Angolan National Institute of Roads with the support of WFP.

Once finished, the bridge will allow access to Luvuei, a locality which has remained isolated from the rest of the country and has considerable humanitarian needs. The bridge also constitutes a major step towards reaching Lumbala N'guimbo locality, thus facilitating the return and resettlement of former Angolan refugees living in exile in neighbouring Zambia.
