An Italian company has agreed to put up as much as $14 million just to study the possibility of building an above-ground metro line between Maputo and its smaller neighbor, Matola. If this pans out, Mozambique would become the second country south of the Sahara with such a system. (South Africa is finishing the first, though I’m not sure it counts.) And this would be a great place to do it. The ten miles or so that separate the cities can take as much as two hours depending on traffic, and that’s when you can catch a minibus.
Yeah, I know. Not holding my breath. But how about bikes?
