It is an integral part of the investment programme for the road sub-sector over the Xth Plan period (2002-2006). The project will consist of the following components: (i) roads works on the rehabilitation of 475 km of roads, reinforcement of 640 km of roads and the construction of 21 structures, and (ii) supervision of the works required. The. Its implementation will cover a period of 42 months with an estimated cost, excluding taxes, amounts to UA 144.46 million.

Project Objectives

The sectoral goal of the project is to contribute to upgrading road infrastructure with a view to putting in place an effective and quality transport system to sustain economic growth and contribute to the objectives of competitiveness of the country’s external trade. Specifically, the project aims to improve the capacity of the classified road network in order to reduce width constraints and the structural condition of paved classified roads and eliminate any bottlenecks in order to reduce transportation costs and promote exchange between the various regions concerned.


The project will benefit a significant portion of the country’s population, particularly the population in the areas situated in the hinterland (North-West, West-Central and South-West) where inadequate basic infrastructure, particularly roads, is the cause of a slow socioeconomic development recorded in the coastal areas.
