The Nacala Road Corridor Project (NRCP) aims at supporting economic growth in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and foster regional integration through reliable, efficient and seamless transport infrastructure that increases subregional trade and the global competitiveness of the region. NRCP, which covers about 1,033 km of roads in Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique and two one-stop border posts, is being implemented in three Phases. In June 2009, AfDB approved Phase I, comprising 348 km in Mozambique and 13 km in Malawi. Phase II covers 360 km of road works in Zambia from Luangwa to Mwami. The Project covers a subset of rehabilitation to Asphalt Concrete standard of 114.7 km of NRCP, Phase II. The Project will also contribute to poverty reduction in Zambia by improving accessibility of communities to markets and social services. The Project includes design measures and awareness campaigns that will result in improved road safety. The total cost of the Project is UA 69.471 million.
The road sector goal is to support economic growth in SADC and foster integration through reliable, efficient and seamless transport infrastructure that increases the global competitiveness of the region. The objective of the Project is to provide Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique with improved road transport infrastructure to Nacala Port and improve accessibility of the communities in the Project’s zone of influence to markets and social services.
It is estimated that 1.3 million people in the Zone of Influence will benefit from the Project. NRCP, Phase II of which the Project is a sub-component, will most directly influence the area between Luangwa and Mwami in the Eastern Province of Zambia. The Project road will strengthen the link between Eastern Province and the administrative and economic centers in Lusaka. Other long-term project beneficiaries include freight shippers, exporters and importers, transport operators, the business community and the wider population in Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique and within SADC.
