Nearly 10,000km of rural roads will be maintained every year

(Togo First) - Togolese authorities plan to ensure the annual maintenance of over 9,800 km of rural roads in the country. In detail, every year 7,020 km will be maintained manually and 2,808km mechanically. 

This was disclosed by the minister in charge of opening up rural areas, Issa-Tchédé Kanfitine, during a meeting with the various actors concerned by the project. 

The latter, it should be noted, falls under the ministry’s roadmap for 2020-2025. It is similar to the rural road support project which under its third phase benefited from a CFA6.5 billion financing in September 2020. 

Let’s recall that more than 2,500 rural roads have been rehabilitated in recent years. In 2016-2018 for example, the government injected substantial amounts in transport infrastructure, especially in rural areas, to enhance economic activity in these parts of Togo.
