Friday, August 25, 2017

Transport Minister Joe Maswanganyi and his Mozambique counterpart, Minister of Roads and Communication, Carlos Alberto Fortes Mesquita, met today in Maputo during the Bi National Commission between the two countries.

“The Ministers discussed issues pertaining to the N4 Maputo Corridor between South Africa and Mozambique with the objective to address cross border road transport operational constraints and the improvement of the flow of transport and traffic between the two countries,” the Department of Transport said on Friday.

The two principals also discussed challenges regarding inadequate overload and access control along the Corridor and the possible adverse financial impact this could result into.

The N4 Maputo Corridor forms an important link in the promotion of trade relations between the two countries.

The two Ministers also deliberated on issues relating to aviation and the maritime sector.

Minister Maswanganyi was accompanied by board members of the department’s entities, the South African National Roads Agency SOC Limited (SANRAL), Cross-Border Roads Transport Agency (C-BRTA) and senior officials from the department. -
