The route from Nampula to Nacala 

The Nacala Corridor

The Corredor de Nacala is a transportation corridor that connects the city of Nacala in Mozambique to Lilongwe, the capital city of Malawi. The corridor is approximately 900 km long and forms an important trade and transport link for the region.

The Corredor de Nacala consists of a railway line, a port in Nacala, and a road that connects Nacala to the Mozambique-Malawi border, and from there to Lilongwe. The railway line was constructed in the 1970s and 1980s and connects the Nacala port to the Malawi border. The port at Nacala is a deepwater port that can accommodate large vessels, making it an important conduit for the exports of coal, sugar, and other commodities from Malawi, northern Zambia and Mozambique.

The road along the Corredor de Nacala has faced significant challenges in the past, including poor road conditions and inefficient border crossings. However, improvements have been made to the road and border posts in recent years, including upgrades to immigration and customs facilities, improvements to road infrastructure, and the installation of electronic weighing systems at weighbridges to reduce corruption.

The Corredor de Nacala represents an essential transportation link for Mozambique and Malawi, facilitating the transport of goods and people between the two countries and beyond. The corridor plays a significant role in regional integration and economic development and is a key contributor to regional trade in Southern Africa. Although there have been challenges in the past, improvements have been made to the infrastructure along the corridor, which will undoubtedly boost regional trade and economic development.
