Trans-Cunene Corridor


The Trans-Cunene Corridor links the Port of Walvis Bay with southern Angola up to Lubango, over a distance of 1,600 km. The Corridor road infrastructure is supported by the northern railway line, which presently extends from the Port of Walvis Bay to Oshikango.

The Angolan Government is currently planning road rehabilitations nationwide, which include the Lubango–Santa Clara leg, extending the Trans-Cunene Corridor.
