Catoca airport runway being upgraded

Saurimo, Angola, 12 Oct – The runway at Catoca aerodrome in Angola’s Lunda Sul province, which is 2,300 metres long and 35 metres wide, is currently being asphalted, Angolan news agency Angop reported.

Work is expected to take 60 days and includes laying the asphalt, signage, evening out the curbsides and creating a new drainage system.

Around US$4.5 million are being spent on the project.

Angop added that after this work is carried out, the contractors will asphalt 7 kilometres of the streets of the mining town of Catoca.

The Catoca aerodrome, which has a dirt runway, is an important airport alternative for the Eastern region of Angola, and receives a daily average of three aircraft at the service of mining company Sociedade Mineira da Catoca and other institutions. (macauhub)
