SISTEMA will provide civil works supervision services within the framework of the Transport Secteur Reform Project in Cape Verde

SISTEMA ENGENIERIA has been awarded a lot to supervise the construction of two roads on the Island of Santiago. Specifically, the works to be supervised are Lot 3 and Lot 5: “Control and Surveillance des Travaux of Route ER-ST-08 Bretelle EN3-ST-22 – Palha Carga – Between Picos de Reda (10 km) and EN3- ST-19 Bretelle EN1-ST-01 – Chao de Formoso / Gil Bispo (12.2 Km) South L’ile de Santiago “.

These works are framed within the Transport Sectour Reform Project (TSRP) that the World Bank is developing in the Macaronesian archipelago. This program was initiated in 2013 and expanded with greater scope in 2017. Its objective is the maintenance of roads and their improvement through wider and safer sections. This Project combines the rehabilitation or updating of key road sections in the socio-economic development of the islands with the support for their maintenance.
