Rehabilitation of 600 km of the Trans-Cunene Railway Line Corridor

The Trans-Cunene Corridor links the Port of Walvis Bay with southern Angola up to Lubango. The Corridor road infrastructure is supported by the northen railway line, which presently extends from the Port of Walvis Bay to Oshikango.

The rehabilitation project focuses on upgrading of the earthworks embankment, strengthening of the bridges and other permanent way infrastructure. It aims to increase the axle load/ton of a 600 km stretch of railway line section to a minimum SADC standard of 18.5 ton/axle load by using 48 kg/m rail or other high profiles. The project supports the expansion of the Walvis Bay Port as it will provide an efficient flow of cargo on the Trans-Cunene rail corridor.
