DRC - Construction of the Kinshasa-Brazzaville road-rail bridge access road from PK 0+00 (carrefour Mulele) to PK 6.8+00 (on the Banks of the Congo river) in Maluku municipality/ Kinshasa city-province - FRP Summary


Central African States have decided to pool their efforts, depending on their economic potential and resources, to develop a viable and competitive sub-regional market. Considering the low level of integration of infrastructure networks and high transport costs in the subregion, the Heads of State and Government of the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS) expressed their commitment to strengthen road and rail infrastructure by adopting a Central African Consensual Transport Master Plan that mainstreams the priority infrastructure projects of the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD). Against this backdrop, the Governments of the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Republic of Congo commissioned a study on a road bridge between Kinshasa and Brazzaville, and on the Kinshasa-llebo railroad.
