Cameroon to build four highways by 2025

APAnews | Cameroon is engaging in the construction of four highways by 2025, three of which are currently under construction and another in feasibility study, the Ministry of Public Works said Monday.

The highways to serve political and economic capitals Yaoundé and Douala is under construction over a distance of 2015 km. For the moment 60 km have been made on this section which will allow rallying quite quickly the two cities.

Due to the problems of clearing rights of way, social unrest and other delays in the payment of accounts, the Chinese company China First Highway Engineering (CFHE) believes that the contractual deadline for completion of construction will not be respected.

The other highway between Yaoundé and Nsimalen is already being drawn through an exchange which twenty kilometers aims to streamline the optimal service to Yaoundé Nsimalen International Airport.

For its part, the Kribi-Lolabe motorway in the South region is on track with a progress rate of 66.22 percent.

It should serve the port of Kribi located about thirty kilometers from the seaside city.

The fourth project concerning the Douala-Limbé motorway is in its feasibility studies phase.

The group Egis International / Egis Cameroon was awarded lot 2 to carry out the feasibility studies and preliminary draft for the construction of the 70 km long motorway.

After this first phase, the second stage concerns the realization of studies for the construction of three motorways in the country.

  1. The town known to lrc as Limbe is not in their territory.
    Ambazonia is capable of taking care of its roads.go take care of your failed state.

    • Yaoundé and Douala is under construction over a distance of 2015 km
      Yaoundé and Nsimalen is already being drawn
      and when it comes to
      LRP REGION : Douala-Limbé only 70KM, still under physibility studies
      whom are they fooling HERE????

  2. Once More Nothing in AmbaLand. We are watching your every move.The Only road LRC is concerned about in Ambaland is how to get oil from Limbe to Douala!

  3. Let them finish their highway to Mvomeka airport strip, pineapple farm and Antoine Samba Marble fortress first. Tif pp!

  4. Chinese company to build this and build that..what ever happen to your own engineers? Shameless country.

  5. When it comes to Southern Cameroons where most of the funding for the Country through natural resources this is what is said “The fourth project concerning the Douala-Limbé motorway is in its feasibility studies phase” The Ring Road has for the last 50 years been understudy. The Limbe deep seaport was simply taken to Kribi. Southern Cameroonians, we have nothing in common with LR. How many southern Cameroonians are ministers-Only One! The divorce must be final and uncontested!

  6. Q: Is it 2025 or 2035 ????
    A: I think it is 2035, the deadline year for LRC to emerge

      2025 will be another year for a presidential election in LRC. Don’t forget, they have presidential elections next year(2018) so if you add 7+2018=2025 which is suppose to be another presidential election to retain( not elect) the King.
