Description

The Pointe Noire – Brazzaville – Bangui – N’Djamena corridor development and upgrading project responds to the orientations of sectoral transport policies and National Programs of ECCAS countries.

It is in line with the priorities expressed in the CMPT-CA and the sectoral transport policy documents, documents for the Poverty Reduction Strategy of the countries crossed and NEPAD. These documents focus on road infrastructure, which clearly constitutes a fundamental if not the main lever of economic development and the emancipation of the majority of populations, especially those in isolated and / or remote regions.

The construction / rehabilitation and upgrading project of the Ouesso – Bangui – N’Djamena road, the central link of corridor 13, consists of:

-the construction and the asphalting of the sections of earth road Ouesso – Bétou – Mbaiki, and Bossembélé – Mbaikoro,

-the rehabilitation of the sections of asphalted roads Mbaiki – Bangui, and Bangui-Bossembélé.
