(Business in Cameroon) - A little more is unveiled on the specifications required for the construction of the first 14 electronic toll booths in Cameroon.

According to the department of public works, new booths include a ring road zone (approach area) which comprises a rigidly structured pavement of two lanes each (2 X 3.50 m in width), two shoulders of 2.00 m wide each.

A booth platform will cover two rigid pavements of two lanes each, three islets of 2.00m wide each including the entire civil engineering works, toll booths and equipment, two sidewalks of 1.50 m wide each, platform and islet sanitation, signaling and operating equipment.

As regard toll booth buildings, they will consist of a ground floor, a floor, a parking lot and a specific secure access road, a generator set and its shelter, all networks and equipment, sanitation and fences. The parking areas, on the other hand, have commercial spaces upstream and downstream of the toll booths.

The 14 toll stations to be built and the road routes are as follows : Nsimalen (Yaoundé-Mbalmayo), Mbankomo (Yaoundé-Mbankomo) ; Tiko (Douala-Mutenguene) ; Edea (Douala-Edea) ; Boumnyebel (Edea-Boumnyebel) ; Nkometou (Yaoundé-Obala) ; Bayangam (Bangangte-Bafoussam) ; Bafia (Obala-Bafia) ; Mbanga (Douala-Mbanga) ; Manjo (Mbanga-Manjo) ; Bandja (Bafang-Bafoussam) ; Matazen (Bafoussam-Bamenda) ; Foumbot (Bafoussam-Foumbot) and Dschang (Dschang-Bamougoum).

As part of the project, the Minister of Land Registry and Land Affairs (Mindcaf) was asked to sign additives to the decrees declaring public utility for the nine sites maintained at the existing posts. The project’s scope is defined according to the new design which requires development on a platform of about 300 m long and 120 m wide, taking into account the planned buildings, parking lots and shopping areas.

The other five toll stations were discussed during local consultations for a consensual designation of the new sites in response to the geophysical and agglomeration constraints of housing or small businesses.
