The 504.5 km Ketta-Djoum Road is a major link on the 1 612 km highway connecting the two capital cities of Brazzaville (Republic of Congo) and Yaoundé, (Cameroon). The road development is scheduled in two phases. Phase I involves:(i) construction and ancillary works, (ii) road transport and transit facilitation measures, including a single checkpoint at the border and a study on the establishment of a Corridor Management Committee; (iii) support for the resettlement of indigenous people dwelling in the project impact area (PIA); and (iv) sensitization campaigns on road safety, environmental protection and STI control, including HIV/AIDS. The successful implementation of Phase I will provide a permanent connection between Congo and Cameroon. It will help to boost trade not only between the two countries but also in the Central African sub-region, even as it will contribute to poverty reduction in the area.
The project aims to improve the service level of the transport logistic chain on the Yaoundé-Brazzaville road axis and the living conditions of dwellers within the project impact area. The development of the Ketta-Djoum road which is an important link of the axis is scheduled in two phases. The first phase and subject of this project centres on four components summarized in the table below which, in addition to road works on the sections concerned, include ancillary works (rural tracks and social activities), construction of a common border checkpoint and other measures geared towards enhancing the protection of the road assets and transport facilitation.
The direct project beneficiaries are the transport system users as well as dwellers within the project impact area (Sangha District in the North of Congo and Cameroon’s South/South East Provinces). The project is expected to not only improve the movement of people and goods between the two countries, but also open up areas with significant economic potential in Northern Congo (agriculture, ore, timber, etc.) and in Cameroon’s South East. Furthermore, the project will help to reduce overall transport costs and improve living conditions of people dwelling along the road.
