(Togo First) - Between 2021 and 2023, 2,200 kilometers of rural roads have been rehabilitated in Togo, according to official sources cited by Togo First. 

According to the same sources, an additional 2,552 kilometers are currently under construction as part of the national rural connectivity program. Moreover, 1,720 kilometers of rural roads underwent routine mechanized maintenance during the three years reviewed. This is out of 2,478 kilometers targeted in this area.

This year, the government plans to invest CFA53 billion in rural road development projects. This will cover the construction of 1,877 kilometers of rural roads and 2,074 units of infrastructure, mechanized routine maintenance of 1,844 kilometers of rural roads, manual routine maintenance of 4,500 kilometers of rural roads, and the establishment of a database on rural roads.

The recent rehabilitation and construction projects align with the government’s strategy to open up rural parts of the country; a strategy started in 2020. The government hopes to rehabilitate and build 4,752 kilometers of rural roads by 2025.
