Slow progress for Cameroon’s Yaoundé-Douala highway

World Highways | Progress remains slow for the construction of the highway connecting Cameroon’s two largest cities, Douala and Yaoundé. The two cities are some 202km apart and the new route is intended to improve transport between Cameroon’s capital, Yaoundé, and its key commercial city and port, Douala.

The existing National Road No3 linking the two cities currently suffers from heavy congestion and the new route will help alleviate the problem and cut journey times, boosting both capacity and safety.

Around 30km of the new highway has now been surfaced. The construction work is being carried out by the Chinese contractor, China First Highway Engineering Company (CFHEC). The project to construct the new highway link includes access roads and will also improve transport to and from Yaoundé International Airport.
