The completed Plano Director Geral Metropolitano de Luanda (PDGML) - which encompasses the six urbanized Municipalities of Luanda Province across an area of 5,300km² has set out an integrated plan for the city’s transit-oriented growth and improvement for the territory.

The provincial plan is an opportunity to address this imbalance and structure development in response to the city’s existing and proposed economic hubs. Luanda is the capital and largest city in Angola, the Plan establishes a new Provincial transport and infrastructure grid as a basis for new smart development corridors which will change the perceptions and face of the city for the years to come.

MIC-HUB was the consultant for the Angolan Government in the preparation of the Luanda’s provincial Masterplan.

Our contribution

An integrated multi-modal network, where public transport plays a key role, is one of the core objectives of the PDGML.

Several multi-modal key corridors will become the main drivers of the urban development and regeneration of the Luanda Metropolitan Area by setting up the main routes permeating the transport and movement network. This entails an integrated, cost-effective, public transport system with a mix of high capacity primary corridors, more urban secondary corridors, and a third level offering the capillarity that guarantees the greatest possible outreach for the service and the necessary feeding connections for the main lines. The Plan was presented to the Strategic Committee of Luanda, composed by the Inter-Ministerial Commission and chaired by President Jose Eduardo dos Santos, who confirmed their approval of the strategy.
