Senegal - Rehabilitation of the Senoba – Ziguinchor -Mpack Road and Opening Up of the Southern Regions


In June 2016, the Government of Senegal requested a contribution from the Bank to the financing of the Project to rehabilitate the Gambian border--Sénoba-Ziguinchor–Mpack–Guinean Guinea Bissau Border section of National Road 4 which forms part of the Dakar-Lagos Trans-African Highway 7 corridor. Implementation of this integrated project will, through its access dimensions and support to the activities of the most vulnerable segments of the population will contribute to the revival of tourism in Casamance, the reduction of agricultural and fruit production losses and to the strengthening of trade and sub-regional integration. The expected outcomes are the growth of transit traffic and trading, country-wide reduction of transport costs, the reduction of customs control points and time spent for controls on the Dakar - Bissau road corridor as well as improved accessibility and conditions for the conduct of socio-economic activities in the project area of influence, especially those of the most vulnerable groups (women and youth).
