Abidjan-Lagos Coastal Transport Corridor

Print this page
Program description:

Involves the modernisation and upgrading of the most travelled West African corridor on the African Regional Transport Infrastructure Network.

Program background:

The Abidjan-Lagos Coastal Corridor is the most travelled West African corridor on the African Regional Transport Infrastructure Network (ARTIN). It is therefore important that this corridor is modernised and upgraded in order to speed up regional integration. The countries to benefit from this project are Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire, Togo, Benin and Nigeria, all of which form part of the Economic Community of West African States. The Abidjan-Lagos Corridor Organization will be the implementing agency. This World Bank-funded organisation was formed to facilitate the free movement of goods and services and involves professional transporters and drivers.

Sector:
Transport
Expected Results:

The more efficient transport system and new border posts will ease the crossing between countries for people and goods. This, in turn, will increase regional trade and save costs. Such a system will contribute to regional integration.

Milestones:

Some sections of this programme are already being implemented as national projects and the countries concerned are rolling out one-stop border posts as part of an on-going trade and transport facilitation project. The norms and standards for this project still need to be harmonised and the project may need expansion in future due to capacity shortages and increased tariff rates. A public-private partnership is planned.

Technical Information:

The project will focus on the modernisation of the most travelled ARTIN corridor in West Africa. It includes the roll-out of five road-related smart corridor modules, which comprise the modernisation of a 384 kilometre stretch of highway, the upgrading of 288 kilometres of road and the creation of four one-stop border posts.
