Maintaining bridge could cost 1.2 million dollars a year – AIM report

Maintenance of the new suspension bridge over the Bay of Maputo could cost around 1.2 million US dollars a year, according to Maputo-Sul, the public company that operates the bridge.

“The Maputo-Katembe bridge is an undertaking that will require a lot of care if it is to have a long life”, said Basilio Nzunga, the Maputo-Sul official in charge of the bridge, cited by the independent television station STV.

Nzunga said that the company is drawing up a manual that will specify how often each type of maintenance must be undertaken. Maputo-Sul is responsible for the maintenance, but Nzunga did not rule out the possibility of farming out the work to private companies.

He added that Maputo-Sul would have to find ways of paying for the maintenance, since he doubted that the money raised from the tolls on the bridge will be enough.
