Tecnovia Angola transforms Samba node / Av. Pedro de Castro Van-Dúnem Loy into a modern transport infrastructure

Tecnovia Angola will soon begin construction of the construction of the Samba / Av. Pedro de Castro Van-Dúnem Loy crossroad, in the city of Luanda.

The project presentation was attended by several entities:  the Ministry of Construction and Public Works (Construction Owner), the Provincial Government of Luanda, the Talatona Municipal Administration and Samba, and the Inspection Coordination entity.

The entities involved were able to know what is designed for this main artery of the city, the needs that led to this project and the impact of its construction on the mobility and future development of the city of Luanda.

The project seeks to meet the urban mobility needs of the population of Luanda, the capital city that grows twice as much as any other city in Angola, currently accounting for 27% of the total of 29,25 million of the Angolan population.

The solution is to redesign the crossroad between the Samba road and Van-Dúnem Avenue, by lowering the Van-Dúnem Avenue and constructing a roundabout with a great radius of curvature. Van-Dúnem Loy Avenue will be uneven in the continuity traffic by building two independent tunnels, accessed by ramps, with two traffic lanes per direction, allowing a high fluidity of the traffic of continuity and decongestion the node of connection between several ways.

In the area of the roundabout, the trenches will be covered in order to install the roundabout at the current elevation, with an exterior radius of 40 meters and three traffic lanes that allow the connection not only the Samba road, but also Van Avenue -Dunem Loy who will have dedicated access roads to the roundabout.

On the Samba Road, a central corridor with a 10m wide width will be reserved for future public transportation system, Light Rail Transit (LRT), like a subway, surface train or other applicable to the development of the city.

The project brings together various specialties of Tecnovia Angola, in a modern road infrastructure, designed for the future, oriented to the mobility and development of the city of Luanda.
