Project General Description

The project consists in the construction, servicing and maintenance of a toll highway between Dakar and Diamniadio (34 km) also serving the new international airport located 42 km from Dakar (Diass). This project is part of the general infrastructure upgrading policy, land use planning and subregional integration of the Senegalese Government. It is considered to be one of the first highways at risk in sub-Saharan Africa (excluding South Africa). The project is structured around the following four components : (i) construction of the highway with toll gates ; (ii) development of the resettlement site; (iii) Pikine-Suburban restructuring ; (iv) management and monitoring of the project implementation.

Project Objectives

Through the implementation of this project, the Government's objective is to restore transport conditions necessary to consolidate growth and foster the emergence of new areas of investment and economic development on the axis Dakar - Diamniadio - inland (in particular in the horticulture, textile, garment, new technology sectors, etc.). The main specific objectives are: (i) to ensure rapid movement of goods and people to and from Dakar, and improve urban mobility in Dakar ; (ii) to provide a connection between the new Diass airport, the center of Dakar and the future Business City planned on the site of the current airport; and (iii) to promote urban development policy outside saturated areas of the Cape Verde peninsula which will eventually materialise with the creation of the Diamniadio platform.

Beneficiaries

The main beneficiary of the project is the State of Senegal.
