Objectifs

The objective of the project is to reduce transport costs by minimizing the maintenance and vehicle operating costs and improving safety between Gayaza - Kalagi and the districts served by the road, in order to promote agricultural production.


Justificatif

Major crops grown in the area include: plantains(matoke), beans, cowpeas, maize, potatoes, cassava, simsim etc. As a result of these economic preoccupation the road has fairly heavy road vehicle traffic ranging from 250 to 600 AADT which necessitate its upgrading to bitumen standard.

(i) reduced vehicle operations costs;

(ii) reduced maintenance costs;
