The inauguration of the Maputo-Catembe Bridge is scheduled to be held on 25 June 2018. The inauguration falls on the day of Mozambique’s Independence Day.
The bridge will link the capital Maputo with the Catembe district, drastically reducing travel times between the capital and some of the country’s tourism destinations.
This bridge will be the largest suspension bridge in Africa and is part of a larger project that includes access roads. One of the access roads will link Catembe to Ponta do Ouro and the other will lead to Bela Vista, halfway between Catembe and Ponta do Ouro.
