Selected Projects


03/05/2016 - There is currently no passable road link between Yaoundé and Brazzaville. The sections of road between Ketta and Djoum on this route are in very poor condition, isolating the regions crossed. Consequently, it is not releasing the agricultural, mining and tourism potential that these areas have and is acting as a brake on the promotion of trade between the two countries.

07/11/2013 - Barely six years after Nigeria and Cameroon signed a Memorandum of Understanding that was to put their socio-political differences behind them, the Enugu-Bamenda Road Project linking the two countries is already showing signs of a positive impact in the region. In fact, the African Development Bank-financed project is a genuine success story, paving the way for regional integration and greater social cohesion.

20/05/2013 - Marrakech, samedi 16 mars 2013, 9h20 du matin. C’est le calme plat à la gare de Marrakech. Même les panneaux indicateurs, où s’affichent les nombreuses destinations au départ et à l’arrivée du terminus, semblent au repos. Mais, moins d’une heure plus tard, les lieux sont arrachés à leur douce léthargie, avec l’entrée en gare d’un train et son flot de passagers qui se déverse sur les quais.

07/09/2012 - L’agglomération de Dakar représente 0.3 % du territoire national, abrite 25% de la population et concentre 80% de l’activité économique du pays. Pour résoudre le problème de mobilité urbaine due à l’enclavement géographique de Dakar, l’Etat du Sénégal a pris l’initiative de construire une autoroute reliant Dakar à Diamniadio (32 km – dont 25 km mis à péage), qui devrait également desservir le nouvel Aéroport International Blaise Diagne, à 42 km de Dakar. Le projet comprend, outre la construction de l’autoroute, la libération des emprises ; le recasement de plus de 5.000 ménages et l’aménagement du site de recasement de Tivaouane Peulh ; la restructuration de Pikine Irrégulier Sud ; ainsi que la gestion et le suivi de l’exécution du projet.
