Namibe, international traffic, Luanda, DRC, road network

Angola’s road system consists of about 51,429 km (31,956 mi) of roads, of which about one-tenth are paved. The road network is inadequate for so large an area and is supplemented by a relatively well-developed internal air service, provided by the country’s national airline. Total operated railroad track is about 2,950 km (about 1,835 mi). The principal line, the Benguela Railroad, links mineral-rich Zambia and the Katanga Region of the DRC with the Atlantic port of Lobito. Because of guerrilla activity, it was closed to international traffic from 1975 to 1980 and has since operated sporadically. The country’s chief ports are the cities of Lobito, Luanda, and Namibe.
