Togo : Government to rehabilitate and asphalt 600km of roads by 2022

(Togo First) - Togo’s government plans to rehabilitate and asphalt nearly 600km of roads by 2022. This will ease traffic and improve access to remote areas while unclogging some major axes.

Through the project, the authorities want to get a modern road network that will enhance transportation of people and goods, such as agricultural products to major cities, while improving road safety. This aligns with the national development plan which aims at making Togo a commercial corridor as well as boost agricultural value chains.

Monies needed for the project, part of which is already secured, are estimated at more than CFA350 billion. In detail, rehabilitation works include the Tsévié-Kévé-Zolo axis (65km), Agou-Notsè (50 km), Grand contournement de Lomé (from Baguida to Adétikopé - 42 km) in the South.

In the Centre and North, roads to be rehabilitated include the 21km Kara bypass which begins in the district of Awandjélo and the major bypass of Atakpamé (15km).

Besides these main axes which should likely benefit from the PIDU (Urban Development and Infrastructure Project), the works will lead to the rehabilitation of 322km of national roads currently in poor shape.
