Project General Description

The present intervention concerns the Rehabilitation and Transport Facilitation on the Lome-Cinkanse-Ouagadougou CU9 Corridor. This project forms part of the priority highways of the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU) community road network. The nearly 975 km-long corridor comprises road sections with different levels of service. The project consists in the rehabilitation of 303 km of road in very bad or bad condition, with 150 km in Togo and 153 km in Burkina Faso, as well as the improvement of transport facilitation along the corridor. The project will be implemented in five (5) years, and its total cost is estimated at UA 250.47 million (exclusive of tax and customs duty), including provision for physical contingencies and price escalation. The expected outcomes are increased transit traffic and trade, reduced general transportation costs, improved road safety, and the creation of jobs for youths and women. The project comprises four main components namely: (A) Road Rehabilitation; (B) Related Facilities; (C) Transport Facilitation; (D) Institutional Support for the Transport Sector and (E) Project Management.

Project Objectives

The project goal is to support economic and social development and regional integration.


The main beneficiaries of the project are project direct impact area populations. These populations covered by the project is 1 993 036 inhabitants, with 1 006 402 women in Togo, and 1 223 956 inhabitants with 649 122 women in Burkina Faso. Most of the people are women (51%) and especially youths aged less than 30 years (about 70% of the population) who are hard hit by unemployment and underemployment. However considering the regional nature of the project, the extended impact area covers Togo and a large part of Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger.
