Gambia - The Trans-Gambia Road Corridor Project - ESMP Summary.
The Trans-Gambia Corridor Project is an economic and strategic link connecting the northern and southern parts of both The Gambia and Southern Senegal, and by extension ECOWAS countries through the corridor between Dakar and Lagos. The objective of the project is to facilitate over land traffic flow between the northern and southern parts of the two sister countries and other ECOWAS Member States. The construction or upgrading of the Trans-Gambia Highway is an integral part of the Trans-Gambia Corridor Project. The expected outcomes include: (i) reduced transport cost, travel time and customs formalities time at the borders; and (ii) enhanced potential for trade thereby contributing to poverty reduction and social-economic empowerment of communities on the corridor and the West African Region as a whole.
