The Nsanje – Marka (M001) road is in the Southern Region of Malawi in Nsanje district. It is approximately 25.9 km earth/gravel road from Nsanje to Marka on the Malawi/Mozambique boarder. The road is part of a regional route connecting Malawi with the Port of Beira in Mozambique and beyond. The road passes through flat terrain of the lower Shire Valley and traverses between the Shire river to the East and the railway line to the West.
This project will involve upgrading the whole stretch to bitumen standard road.
This road is critical as it shall provide easy movement of people, goods and services. Malawi being land locked the link into Mozambique to the port of Beira shall provide the much needed trade link for the movement of goods for the two countries.
