A feasibility study of the road between Tsumeb in Namibia and Katwitwi in Angola has reached its final stage.

The report is being complied by the Roads Authority (RA) and Africon Namibia.

The study involves detailed design, documentation, contract management and site supervision of the road project, which is expected to cost nearly N$700m.

The road is expected to improve trade between the two countries because of its strategic location.

The project has been delayed by many years due to war activities.

The road is part of the trunk road development project to improve Namibia’s linkages with its neighbours in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) to improve business.
