Burkina Faso to invest €160mln in big road projects in 2021

(Ecofin Agency) - Burkina Faso is pursuing its road modernization plan. This year, the country plans to invest more than CFA105 billion (€160 million) in big road projects.

This decision was reported following a meeting of the members of the budget review committee. It involves "Development of the classified road network, urban roads, railway, airport, maritime and cartographic infrastructures." The committee met in Ouagadougou on Tuesday 6 April.

According to Ollo Franck Hervé Kansié, Secretary-General of the Ministry of Infrastructure and chairman of the review committee, the program targets 12 road projects. "As of December 31, 2020, out of a forecast of CFA97.22 billion, CFA75.13 billion has been executed, making a rate of 77.28%," he said.

The Burkinabe government is planning to start major projects such as the asphalting of the Ouahigouya-Djibo national road No. 23, the Tougan-Ouahigouya national road No. 10, and the reinforcement of the Gounghin-Fada-Niger border community road. Projects also include the rehabilitation and transport facilitation on the Lomé-Cinkansé-Ouagadougou corridor and the Yamoussoukro-Ouagadougou highway construction.

The capital and its outskirts, which have more than 3 million inhabitants, will also undergo a transformation this year, notably with the project to improve the southeast bypass of Ouagadougou's Tansoba Boulevard and the turnkey construction project for the Ouagadougou North interchange.
