Abidjan-Lagos Corridor: the UK provides €79 million loans for expansion of Tema-Aflao road

(Togo First) - Togo’s neighbor Ghana will get a €79 million loan from the UK to expand the 166km-road from Tema to Aflao which connects the two countries. 

Once the expansion works (carried out by the British company BHM Construction International) are completed, four lanes will be added to the existing two. Also, the Lower Volta bridge at Sogakope (located in former British Togo), which crosses the road, should be widened. 

It should be noted that the road concerned is part of the Abidjan-Lagos corridor. The latter which spans more than 1000 km connects five West African countries (Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana, Togo, Benin, and Nigeria). The ambitious sub-regional integration project is financed mainly by the ECOWAS and the African Development Bank (€22.4 million to date).
