Togo intends to asphalt 60% of its roads by 2022

(Togo First) - By 2022, the Togolese government wishes to have asphalted 60% of its roads. 

The goal was disclosed by Sani Yaya, minister of finance, as the government was signing with the West African Development Bank (BOAD) a financing agreement of XOF20 billion to construct and asphalt the Katchamba-Sabori road. 

If the goal is achieved, road traffick should be more fluid as various axes will be unclogged. Moreover, this should improve access to some remote areas, subsequently boosting economic activities, both at the national and regional levels. 

Besides increasing the percentage of asphalted roads, authorities want, at the same time, to "reduce travel time for trucks between Lomé and Cinkassé, from 48 hours in 2016 to 24 hours in 2022." This will be done by doubling the N°1 national road (which is one of the flagship projects of the country's 2018-2022 national development plan).
