According to the official, users are already able to easily circulate along the paved 44.9 km itinerary that connects Yoko to Lema in the central region. Specifically, Yoko-Lena is the first section of the Nationale N°15 to be completed.

The completed road is an R80 (reference speed of 80 km/h) and R60 (reference speed 60 km/h) category infrastructure. This means that depending on the track being crossed, the reference speeds should be either 80 km/h or 60 km/h. In the framework of that lot, a 2.5 km road has also been constructed in Yoko. This cross-section is a 10-meter platform that includes roadway of two 3.5-meter roads and two 1.5-meter roadsides at the rural bend area. As required, Sinohydro also placed empty tubes for optical fibres.

The lot 4 was funded (XAF19.61 billion) by the AfDB and Cameroon. Sinohydro was chosen to pave the 7-meter large road and build related infrastructures that will improve residents’ living conditions. The consortium Cira/Bec/la Routière was chosen to monitor the works on this lot as well as on lot 2 and 3 for XAF5.43 billion.
