The Lungi – Port Loko road project will connect the Port Loko district to the Economic Community of West African States regional priority Freetown – Conakry road corridor and therefore will promote regional economic integration with Guinea and other trading partners. The project covers construction works for the upgrading of 62km Lungi -Port Loko road to paved standards and the rehabilitation of 6.5km of Lungi township roads, the gravelling of 30km of earth feeder roads and construction of social infrastructure for local small scale farmers. The investment requirements for this project stem from the current situation of poor condition of the road which is a major impediment to movements of goods and people in the Port Loko District and beyond. The duration of its implementation is 24 months (January 2010 to January 2012). The total costs, exclusive of taxes and duties are UA 26.26 million.
The overarching goal of the project is to contribute to the post-war rehabilitation of basic road network in order to promote socio-economic development, regional integration and poverty reduction efforts. The specific project objective is to connect, using a paved road, Port Loko and the rest of north and east of Sierra Leone with the airport city of Lungi; and to connect airport city with Freetown, the economic and political capital of Sierra Leone. The road is also part of regional network connecting Liberia and Guinea and will also promote regional integration.
The project beneficiaries are estimated at about 480 thousand people, that is 8.4% of Sierra Leone’s population. They are made up of inhabitants of the project area (PA) and road users.
