Program Development Objectives
The sector goal of the program is to contribute to increased trade and to the strengthening of co-operation between CEMAC zone countries and those of the ECOWAS zone in general and between Cameroon and Nigeria in particular. The specific objective of the program is to improve the efficiency of the transport logistic chain along the Bamenda-Enugu corridor.
The final indicators include as output indicator the number of kilometers of improved roads and as outcome indicators, amongst others, the savings in travel time resulting from the planned interventions, the increased length of corridor highway in a good state, the reduced number of overloaded vehicles, the reduced overall transport costs on the corridor, the reduced border crossing times and the improved accessibility to socio-economic infrastructures (schools, health centres, markets, farm produce processing units, women’s advancement centres).
To achieve these objectives, the program components comprise:
Component A - Improvement and rehabilitation of roads comprises:
In Cameroon :
In Nigeria :
In both countries :
Component B - Related works (rehabilitation of social and commercial infrastructure etc.) comprises:
Development of related feeder roads in Cameroon ;

Building of boreholes and rest areas for drivers along the corridor in both countries;
Control and supervision of works in both countries
Component C - Transport facilitation comprises:
Studies on the transport issue (completely financed with the ADF Grant) ;
Engineering study of the common border checkpoint (completely financed with the ADF Grant) ;
Construction and equipment of the common border checkpoint (completely financed with the ADF Grant);
Supply and installation of axle-load control stations (axle-load scales) along the corridor funded with ADF loan to both countries;
Control and supervision of the construction of the joint border post funded by the ADF Grant ;
Training/seminars/study tours/sensitization on the transport corridor concept (completely funded by ECOWAS).
Component D - Program management and implementation monitoring comprises:
Technical assistance to ECOWAS comprising, over a 24 month period, a transport economist or a civil engineer and 6 men/months of specific experts completely financed by the ADF Grant ;

Out of the four planned procurement activities, i.e. (a) technical assistance (TA), (b) studies on how to harmonize transport specifications and standards between ECOWAS and ECCAS, (c) engineering design study and supervision of the construction works of the joint border post (JBP) and (d) construction works and equipment of the JBP, only procurement for the technical assistance one has commenced.
Due to procurement delays, it is now proposed to prepare design and build bidding documents.
