Ciclone Freddy danificou mais de 30 pontes e três mil km de estradas em Moçambique

Tropical Cyclone Freddy, which hit the country's central and northern provinces, destroyed 34 bridges and around 3,000 kilometers of roads, according to preliminary data.

The information was provided this Saturday by the director of the Central Planning Services at the National Roads Administration (ANE), Calado Honwana, in an interview with Rádio Moçambique (RM), following the slowdown of the tropical system. "Data continues to be collected as the weather conditions improve. I have information that, at the moment, we have around 2,700 kilometers of damaged roads, 230 damaged aqueducts, 34 affected bridges and around 20 drifts with passability problems," said Honwana.

According to the source, ANE teams are currently in the places affected by the cyclone surveying all the damage caused by the rain and strong winds.

"At the moment, colleagues are in the provinces that were affected by the floods doing the survey," he said.
