Project General Description

This project concerns the Kyabé-Singako road section which is 72.3 km long and is one of the missing links of the Ndjamena-Moundou-Sarh-Kyabé-Am Timan corridor. It is designed because of the severe degradation of the road serving this area, coupled with its high volume of heavy vehicle traffic. The Kyabé-Singako highway forms part of the priority structuring network which the Chadian government is committed to developing to ensure countrywide coverage and all-season accessibility, and it is a link in the Moundou-Sarh-Abeche loop that will connect the southwest to the main town of the centre-east through the rich farmlands of Moyen Chari and Salamat Regions of the south. The project addresses the issue of facilitation of the country’s inland transport system by bringing the territory out of isolation, but also envisages opening the country up to the rest of the Region through neighbouring Sudan. The project includes ancillary works, namely the construction/improvement of feeder roads, the rehabilitation of socio-economic infrastructure and the development of social infrastructure for women. The expected outcomes are: reduction of overall transport costs in this region with high agro-pastoral potential and improvement of the living conditions of its people through increased access to health and educational facilities and to the country’s key consumer centres. The project implementation period is 4 years, for a total estimated cost of UA 80.298 million.

Project Objectives

At sector level, the project aims to open up Chad’s central and eastern regions for their economic and social development and contribute to poverty alleviation among the local populations. Its specific objective is to improve the conditions of transport /movement of goods and people between Kyabe and Singako in particular and also between Sarh and Abeche, by developing all-season roads.

Beneficiaries

The main beneficiaries of the project are the populations of the Moyen-Chari region (which constitutes the expanded project area), transport operators and road users. The 72.3 km highway to be constructed between Kyabé and Singako is located in the Departement of Lac Iro and traverses 16 communities of three cantons (Kyabé, Koskobo and Singako ), which thus constitute the immediate project impact area.
