EU provides Togo an observatory for land transport

(Togo First) - Togo inaugurated its first public transport observatory (OTT) last Tuesday. The building which was offered to the ministry of transport by the European Union (EU) cost CFA200 million.

The EU also equipped the facility (over CFA10 million spent) and bought two pick-up vans (CFA46 million) for the personnel.

The new observatory will assess any activity related to transportation of travellers and goods by land. In addition, “it will reinforce SME’s capacities, enabling them to fully play their role in the maintenance of roads in Togo,” said Michel Tindano, Secretary-General of the ministry of transport, at the inauguration ceremony.

The observatory was built as part of the regional program to support  governance in the transport sector, a program that covers West Africa.
