The Project to rehabilitate National Road 2 (RN2) and open up access to Morphil Island is an investment project for the rehabilitation of road infrastructure. The project includes the development and paving of roads on Morphil Island, which is an area with great agricultural potential and where the populations face enormous difficulties in their movements and trade with the rest of the country. The development of this area is constrained by its landlocked status and requires the construction of road infrastructure, to ensure permanent links between different localities. This road infrastructure development and paving programme in Morphil Island will link the populations concerned to National Road 2 and, therefore, ensure territorial continuity of the region with the rest of the country. The project will also contribute to the objectives of the National Rice Self-sufficiency Programme (PNAR). Project activities will be implemented from September 2015 to December 2018. The total cost of the entire project, net of taxes and customs duties, is estimated at UA 283.98 million (EUR 361.15 million).
The sector goal of the project is to help reduce poverty and increase regional trade. Its specific objectives are to: (i) improve the service level on National Highway 2 (RN2); (ii) open up Morphil Island; and (iii) improve the living conditions of the population in the project area.
The main project beneficiaries are the farmers, who face difficulties in obtaining inputs and marketing their products due to the poor state of the roads. The project will have a positive impact on women and young people by improving their access to socio-economic activities and creating new employment opportunities. Other project beneficiaries are the manufacturers, carriers and shippers, who will witness a significant reduction of their operating and logistic costs as a result of the rehabilitation of highways and development of rural roads.
