Togo: Rehabilitation of Avepozo-Togokome Road Complete

(Togo First) - The works to rehabilitate the 10 km-long road going from Avepozo to Togokome are complete. The Minister of Public Works, Zourehatou Kassah Traore, visited the site on Wednesday, September 6. 

The Minister, on the occasion, noted that the completed works met the specifications imposed. CRBC and Soroubat, respectively a Chinese and Tunisian firm, were in charge of these works. 

"We have indeed noted that the work is well executed. There are drainage channels, sidewalks for pedestrians, and public lighting. As part of the green infrastructure program, we have opted for solar lighting. As for Togokomé, apart from the 2×2 lane road, there were several related developments. All in all, as the project owner, we are satisfied," said Kassah Traore.

Launched in 2020, the works are part of a bigger project to rehabilitate the Lomé-Cotonou road which is divided into two parts. The first, which was just completed, covers the Avepozo-Togome segment, and the second, which is underway, goes from Togokome to Aneho, spanning 20 km.  In 2021, the whole project’s cost was estimated at CFA47 billion.
