Project General Description

The project seeks to improve the level of service of the Kumba-Mamfe Road (NR8), which is an extension of the multinational Bamenda-Mamfe-Ekok-Nigeria border Corridor under constructed with Bank financing. The project road works cover a linear distance of 150.87 km. The project also comprises related works concerning the development of rural roads, rehabilitation of socio-economic infrastructure, and promotion of youth employment. The project implementation will cover 5 years at a total cost estimated at UA 108.45 million.

Project Objectives

The overall goal of the project is to contribute to Cameroon’s economic growth through quantitative and qualitative enhancement of the transport infrastructure on the national road network. The specific objective is to help open up and develop the South West Region of Cameroon by improving the level of road service between Kumba and Mamfe and the living conditions of the people of this region.


The direct beneficiaries of the project are the 1,384,286 inhabitants of the three divisions of the South West Region, while the people of Nigeria’s eastern States will benefit from the project indirectly, given its regional nature. The beneficiary population will contribute to the construction, management and maintenance of some related infrastructure.
