Project General Description

The present intervention concerns the Gitega-Nyangungu Segment of the Gitega-Nyangungu-Ngozi Road Project Phase II. It comes under the road network improvement programme, on which the productive sectors rely. It is in line with the Country Strategy Paper (CSP) for 2008-2011 and will help to complete the development of the Gitega-Nyangungu-Ngozi road. The road development was divided into two phases because of inadequate resources. Phase II covers: (A) the development and asphalting of the Gitega-Nyangungu segment (50 km); (B) related works including: (i) the rehabilitation of 22 km of rural roads, including the paving of 4 km; (ii) the development of socio-economic and commercial infrastructure, and a parking lot for heavy vehicles in Gitega; (iii) the construction of pedestrian bridges; and (iv) project implementation management and monitoring support. The main components of the project are: (a) road works; (b) road-related developments; (c) support for project management and monitoring; and (d) release from project right-of-way.

Project Objectives

The project goal is to facilitate the movement of goods and persons along the Gitega-Nyangungu-Ngozi Road and improve community access to basic services.


Project beneficiaries include: (i) the rural communities in the provincial districts of the impact area characterized by a poverty rate that remains very high due to the persistent negative effects of the socio-political conflicts it has experienced; (ii) the staff responsible for coordination services for farmers’ organizations; and (iii) traders and transport sector professionals.
