Burkina Faso brought their number of paved or maintained roads to more than 1,000 km in 6 years

(Ecofin Agency) - Aware of the economic benefits of modernizing its road infrastructure, Burkina Faso has intensified its efforts to improve the quality of its road network over the past six years. The West African country sees this as an essential lever for accelerating the development of its production sectors.

The development of road infrastructure has been at the heart of the first term of office of Burkinabe President Roch Marc Christian Kaboré. Between 2015 and 2020, the country completed 1,028 km of roads in asphalt work, reinforcement, and periodic maintenance, Prime Minister Christophe Joseph Marie Dabiré (pictured) revealed this last May 20 while addressing the parliament on the state of the nation.

For the head of government, this is a satisfactory result "despite the work stoppages caused by the security situation." Under the new five-year program 2021-2025, he said that the government is committed to achieving another 1,192 km of main roads. Regarding rural roads, the development work underway covers a total of 3,548 km of which 2,135 km are completed.

"Our ambition is to accelerate the completion of ongoing projects as well as the start-up of new projects to open up the country," said Prime Minister Christophe Dabiré.
