Cross-border road corridors
Most of East Africa’s infrastructure development focuses on the region surrounding Lake Victoria, extending to the Great Lakes. Road corridors in the region strengthen trade between the inland states and facilitate access to the main ports of Mombasa and Dar es Salam on the East African coast, or head South to reach the Southern Africa region and the seaport of Nacala in Mozambique. The African Development Bank has fi nanced main sections and feeder sections of 6 strategic trading corridors: Nacala (1900km), Mtwara, (800km), North-South (from Rwanda to Zambia 2700km), Northern (2300km), Mombasa - Addis Ababa (2000km), and Nairobi - Lusaka (2300km), a total of over 12000 km of roads in the region.
