Mozambique: Africa's largest suspension bridge to be completed in October 2018!

According to Mozambique's Minister of Public Works, Housing and Water Resources, João Machatine, the Maputo-Catembe bridge (or Maputo-Katembe bridge or Maputo - Ka Tembe bridge), which connects Maputo with Catembe by crossing the Maputo Bay, will be ready by the end of October 2018. The official opening of Africa's largest suspension bridge has been postponed several times since December 2017.

The Maputo-Katembe bridge is about three kilometers long, has a width of 680 metres and stands 60 metres above sea level. It forms part
of a larger infrastructure project that includes a set of access roads on both banks and other roads. One of the adjoining roads links the bridge with the Ponto de Ouro border post (Mozambique) and the Kosi Bay border post (South Africa), which cuts the driving time from Mozambique's border with KwaZulu-Natal to Maputo by about four hours.
