This project is part of a Transport Sector Support Programme. Phase I of this road programme comprises the Batschenga-Ntui-Yoko-Lena road, which is approximately 248.6 km long. This road is a segment of national highways NH15 (Batschenga-Tibati) and NH6 (Tibati-Mambal), and provincial highway 15A (Mambal-Lewa). It runs through the Centre and Adamaoua Regions, specifically straddling the Mbam et Kim (Ntui) and Djérem (Tibati) Divisions. The development of this road is part of the Government’s efforts to channel produce from the Mbam-Sanaga agricultural basin to the main consumption centres of the Central African Economic and Monetary Community (CEMAC), through the Yaoundé-Ndjamena-Bangui, Yaoundé-Libreville-Bata and Yaoundé-Ouesso-Brazzaville road corridors. Apart from serving as a national road, the project road is a strategic alternative route for national and/or international traffic between the northern and southern regions of Cameroon and to Chad. Upgrading this road segment and reducing its length should therefore help to boost the competitiveness of the road, as compared to other corridors, and consolidate the status of the project area as a transit point. The works scheduled include related activities such as the development of rural roads, the rehabilitation of socioeconomic infrastructure and the promotion of business activities for women. The project also addresses the institutional support needs of the transport and urban development sectors with a view to ensuring complementarity and diversification of the Bank's operations in Cameroon. The duration of project implementation is 4 years and the total project cost is estimated at UA 333.031 million.
The project’s overall objective is to contribute to the expansion and modernization of Cameroon's road network with a view to supporting economic diversification. The project’s specific objectives are: (i) to improve conditions for transport and movement of goods and persons between Batchenga-Ntui-Yoko-Lena with a view to developing and enhancing the potential of the major Mbam-Sanaga agricultural basin; and (ii) to strengthen transport sector governance.
The main beneficiaries of the project are the 4,400,000 inhabitants of the Centre and Adamaoua Regions of Cameroon. It will also indirectly benefit comunities located in the western part of Chad, given the regional character of the project.
