Plans for a new highway connecting the African nations of Mozambique, Zambia and Malawi are gathering pace.

The project is likely to cost up to US$600 million to complete and will provide a key trade route between the nations, with the economies of Malawi and Mozambique in particular need of development, while Zambia's copper mining industry will benefit from the link.

Some $23 million will be required to construct the first section of the road forming the Nacala Corridor.

Some of the funding for the work is being provided by the 1586 African Development Bank, and the project's civil work tenders will be issued in October 2011, while the design review is being finalised at present.
