(Business in Cameroon) - In Bafoussam, the West regional capital, construction company Razel, is currently testing roller-compacted concrete RCC for road construction as part of the “Capitales regionals” program; a scheme financed by the French government through C2D (Debt Reduction and Development Contracts).

According to an expert interviewed by Cameroon Tribune, the roller-compacted concrete makes it possible to give the road a minimum duration of 30 years, compared to 15 years conditioned by 3 to 5 years of maintenance for “bituminous concrete” (BB).

The RCC is a material used in Canada for 60 years, which enables road construction at a budget three times lower than bituminous concrete, the expert said. The material will also be used in the cities of Bertoua and Garoua.
