Project General Description

The Rural Access and Mobility Project (RAMP) aims to build an adequate, low-cost, safe, environmentally responsible and efficient transport system. It is part of the context of a market economy that is developing gradually and is competitive. RAMP aims to improve transport and mobility in rural areas, which is also one of the Bank's priorities in its interventions in these areas. The estimated project cost is UA 39.40 million and the estimated duration is 43 months. It has two main components: (i) the rehabilitation of rural feeder roads (474 km); and (ii) Institutional Capacity Building was developed under the first phase of the RTTP.

Project Objectives

The objective of the project is to improve access to transportation services for the rural population of Cross River State.

Beneficiaries

In Cross River State (CRS), approximately 180,000 households within a radius of less than 10 km of rehabilitated roads, or approximately 1.3 million rural community members, will benefit directly from RAMP. Roads to be rehabilitated as a priority under the project serve 15 of the 18 communes that make up the CRS. The 2.8 million people in Cross River State will therefore benefit indirectly from the project.
