Egypt’s state-owned construction company Arab Contractors announced on Tuesday that it has won a contract to establish a 150km long road in DR Congo linking two key cities in the country.
In a statement, Arab Contractors CEO Sayed Farouk said the project, worth 110 million euros, is funded by the European Development Fund.
The road will link the cities of Kamuesha and Kananga, Farouk said, noting that the project includes the establishment of three bridges of different lengths as intersections to the road.
The project also includes 33 industrial works for rain drainage and road protection, Farouk added.
Arab Contractors has also recently started a project to build and furnish a five-storey building for the defence ministry in the Congolese capital of Kinshasa, Farouk said.
Farouk also noted that the company has won the trust of Congolese customers due to the quality of the projects it implements in the African country and its adherence to delivery dates.
Farouk said that Arab Contractors is currently finishing the implementation of a number of internal roads in Kinshasa and the development of a water plant in Uvira city in the South Kivu Province.
