(Business in Cameroon) - This year, the Cameroonian government pulled efforts to develop and upgrade the national road network, the ministry of public works (Mintp) featured in the year-end review submitted to parliament.
“In the Public Works sector, significant efforts have been made. Many projects have seen the construction of 317.6 km of new asphalt roads and 144 linear meters of bridges,” Mintp said, stressing that through the adoption of an adequate regulatory framework, several works have been carried out by local workers in order to compensate for traffic disruptions.
The ministry said the linear density of Cameroon’s asphalt network is developing at a significant rate increasing from 5,240 km to 6,760 km of asphalted road between 2010 and 2016. The government is targeting 9,558 km by 2020. Structuring axes currently under construction cover over 2,883 km of national and municipal roads.
