The current program, known as Road Program Phase 1 (RP1), concerns the first phase of the Road Network Development Program (PARR), which entails the construction of three roads and the conduct of road studies preparatory to Phase II of the Program. It focuses on the following road stretches: Fougamou-Mouila, La LeyouLastourville and Ndendé-Lébamba. The FougamouMouila-Ndendé-Doussala road (Congo Brazzaville border) is one of these highways and is an important segment of the Ndjaména-Yaoundé-Brazzaville road corridor retained as one of the priority projects of NEPAD. The implementation of this program constitutes a crucial phase in gradual establishment of Gabon’s structuring road network under the PARR. This first phase also covers related construction works and some of the institutional support needs of the Ministry of Public Works, Equipment and Construction. The estimated cost of the program, net of compensation and taxes, stands at UA 246.56 Million.
The sector goals of the program are: (i) the consolidation of regional integration; (ii) increase of internal access roads and; (iii) poverty reduction by improving the living conditions of the people. Its specific goals are: (i) the reduction of vehicle operating costs and improvement of road safety; and (ii) improvement of access to socio-economic and health infrastructure located along program roads in the provinces of NGOUNIE and OGOOUE LOLO.
The program will mainly benefit the populations of the provinces concerned: NGOUNIE and OGOOUE LOLO. Carriers, farmers, women active in the subsistence agriculture and handicrafts sector, traders living in the area of influence of the project as well as the utilitarian travelers of the roads to be developed will also benefit from the interventions.
