The Government of Ghana (GOG) has been implementing major road improvement programmes as a part of its transport policy. The importance attached to the road network is mainly to (i) reduce the waiting and travel times (ii) improve the transport services, with consequent reduction in poverty and developmental impact in all parts of the hinterland, and (iii) enhance regional integration and cooperation between Ghana and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). In pursuance of economic growth, regional trade and integration, Government identified three projects for financing by the Bank under the programme (including one Multi-national), namely (i) TemaAflao Road Rehabilitation Project, (ii) Akatsi – Dzodze - Noepe Trunk Road Project and (iii) UEMOA/Ghana Road Programme 1 (Techiman- Kintampo Section in Ghana), and requested for Bank’s financial assistance to implement these projects. Accordingly, the three projects were appraised in July 2001, August 2001 and August 2003 respectively and the Bank approved the three loans under ADF financing as under.
The programme objective is to contribute to the strengthening of economic integration and sub-regional co-operation of UEMOA and ECOWAS member countries, and to improving accessibility to the countries in the hinterland.
