This intervention concerns second phase, for EUR 329.47 million (UA 261.49 million), which covers all remaining activities of the Abidjan Urban Transport Project (PTUA). The first tranche of the Bank loan was approved in December 2016 to finance the work of the 4th Abidjan Bridge - connecting Yopougon to the Plateau. This complementary loan will make it possible to transform 88 km of roads threatened with saturation into urban highways, thus doubling the flow capacity of the traffic. Are concerned, the roads of Dabou (section between Yopougon and the junction of Jacqueville), west of Abidjan, and Adzopé (between Yopougon and Thomasset), north. The Abidjan ring road called "Y4 ring road" (northern section) will also be developed, the Latrille boulevard will be extended and split, the traffic lights of 90 intersections will be rehabilitated and an intelligent traffic control system will be installed.
At sector level, the project aims to establish infrastructure for urban transport use, improve the quality of life, and facilitate economic activities by easing mobility and ensuring a healthy living environment. Specifically, the project objective is to improve: (i) accessibility to economic activity zones; (ii) the living conditions of the population; and (iii) Abidjan’s urban management capacity.
The beneficiaries are the Ivorian government and the population of the city of Abidjan.
