(Business in Cameroon) - The Urban Community of Ngaoundéré, in the Adamawa region, located in northern Cameroon, recently benefitted from funding worth FCfa 80 million granted by the World Bank, we officially learned.

This funding will be used, according to the management of the office of the mayor of the regional capital of Adamawa, to set up a granite to paving stone processing unit, for the construction of drains and surfacing of urban roads.

 “Asphalt is expensive and not always affordable for decentralised local governments. One of the solutions to this problem is using granite and other rocks surrounding the town of Ngaoundéré and the neighbourhood”, claimed the delegate of the government to the Urban Community of Ngaoundéré.

As a reminder, based on estimates from the National Road Council (Conaroute – Conseil National de la Route), the price per kilometre of asphalted roads in Cameroon is approximately FCfa 205 million, against only FCfa 100 million on average in Africa.
