According to a company statement, Portos e Caminhos de Ferro de Moçambique (CFM) is supporting construction work on 72 kilometers of the Bangula-Marka railway line, linking the districts of Mutarara and Malawi. The Chinese company CR20 is responsible for the construction of the Malawian Railway. The works are already being completed at a rate of 17%.
The Chairman of the Board of Directors of CFM, Miguel Matabel, pledged to support Malawi in the transport of material so that the project for the construction of the railway line, Blantyre-Mutarara, is finalized. In fact, at the beginning of this month, a train departed from Porto da Beira carrying material for the construction of the railway line, with an emphasis on cement.
According to the CFM communiqué, the operationalization of the line will allow, in the first phase, the circulation of commercial cargo trains and, subsequently, the circulation of passenger trains.
