26 October 2009
The West African Economic and Monetary Union (UEMOA) is going to grant aid of close on three and a half million Dollars to finance preparatory studies aimed at the renovation of highway infrastructures in Togo.
Momboza Halaoui, Director General of the agency for carrying out urban public works, stated this week in an interview with Republicoftogo.com that the money will be used to carry out technical and economic studies, as well as environmental and social impact investigations.
“The objective is, of course, to improve road transport and transit conditions (...) and to provide the Togo State with the information essential for the mobilisation of the financial resources.”
These studies, which are to be carried out over a 19 month period, involve the project of creating a dual carriageway on National Highway No. 1 from Lomé to Sinkansé (667 km) as well as the uprating of a long highway of 115 kilometres, running from the frontier with Benin to Ghana.<br/>
