The project involves the rehabilitation works for the 70 km inter-urban road between Matotoka and Yiye to a bituminous standard. The rehabilitation works also cover environmental and social mitigation measures as well as some complementary initiatives (works) encompassing social infrastructure. These include the rehabilitation of 20 km of feeder roads; rehabilitation of three primary schools (provision of classroom blocks, sanitation and water facilities) in Masingbi, Makali and Ngo town/Yiye; rehabilitation of a health centre in Masingbi; and improvements to one market in Matotoka. It also includes sensitisation of project area inhabitants on HIV/AIDS, TB and STIs; malaria and water related diseases; ownership and environmental protection, as well as sensitisation of project area inhabitants on road safety.
After the completion of the project, it is expected that the average travel time from Matotoka to Yiye will reduce by at least 30% and that the road will be in 100% good condition. It is anticipated that at least 500 people and 5 schools along the road construction site would be sensitized in HIV/AIDS, TB, STIs, water related diseases and road safety. It is also envisaged that one market, three primary schools and one health center will be rehabilitated/provided with improved facilities for water and sanitation.
The rehabilitation of the road will be beneficial for the development of the Eastern region of Sierra Leone as the current road condition affects the full exploitation of the economic potential of the area.
