Project General Description

The Project will enable the Government of Angola (GOA) to timely and properly make decisions and take actions toward better transport infrastructure and services. It has 2 components. The first focuses on updating the national transport sector master plan (incorporating existing plans and studies) and will result in: i) the formulation of a comprehensive strategy and policy for the national transport network of roads , railways, waterways, ports and airports in Angola; (ii) development of a national and integrated transport network for the future, linking existing transport infrastructure, and (iii) identification and selection of priority projects with justifications. The second component of the project consists of a preliminary feasibility study (pre-F / S) on the railway link between the existing railway "Caminhos de Ferro de Benguela (CFB)" and Zambia. The first component will be executed in 15 months, while the second will take 6 months.

Project Objectives

The objective is to provide Government of Angola (GOA) with an integrated master plan built on existing plans and studies with a clear strategy, priority and justification in terms of transport infrastructure development including the Railway Link between CFB and Zambia, so that GOA can have a clear vision of infrastructure development up to 2025, the target year of the “Visão 2025”.


The direct beneficiaries of the study are the Ministry of Transport and the Ministry of Urbanism and Construction including the transport-related entities under the ministries.
