Hargeisa bypass is a key link to the Berbera Corridor. Its construction complements ongoing modernisation at Berbera Port that aim to increase capacity by up to 450,000 TEU per year equalling to 1000 trucks (20 ft containers) a day. The Hargeisa bypass is part of a three-component three-year programme by the United Kingdom known as “Unlocking Prosperity in the Horn of Africa”. The programme focuses on increasing trade and economic development along the Berbera trade corridor, supporting inclusive trade and stimulating economic potential through transport infrastructure development. The case for the construction of the bypass is as follows: Decongestion of Hargeisa city Allow faster movement of humanitarian aid trucks e.g WFP trucks are normally held at Halaya check point during the day and only released at night. As a critical link to the Berbera Port; decongesting the bypass builds a business case for the Port and will have an...

Port Reitz road

[vc_row][vc_column][custom_inner_menus select_menu="project"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][single_project_block_1 heading="Port Reitz road" implementor="Kenya National Highways Authority" target_group="Transporters along the Northern Corridor" project_value="20M USD" implementation_period="2014 - 2016" download_btn_text="Download Project PDF" download_btn_link="#url"]The single largest project currently underway at the Port of Mombasa is the construction of a new container terminal at Kipevu West. The project, which is scheduled to be completed in August 2016 is expected to greatly improve the capacity and efficiency of the Port by bringing on board an extra 19,940 passenger car units (CPU) capacity by 2018 being an increase from the 2,874 CPU recorded in 2014. To support access to the Kipevu West container terminal, The Government of Kenya is currently undertaking the construction of the Mombasa Southern By pass project which is expected to be completed by 2018. In the period preceding the completion of the by-pass, the Port Reitz Road will be crucial to the Kipevu West Container Terminal as it will be the only access to the new container terminal. A traffic survey undertaken by the Kenya National Highways Agency (KeNHA) in January 2014 demonstrates that the present infrastructure in the Port Reitz area will be inadequate to meet the increased traffic demand. The survey recommends urgent expansion of the Port Reitz road into a dual carriageway. What: The project will expand Port Reitz Road from the Port Reitz Hospital Gate, (located approximately 200m past the Kipevu West Terminal access road) to the junction with the Airport Road., and the Moi International Airport Road from Changamwe roundabout. How: TMA is providing funding...

Ntungamo – Mirama Hills Road Construction

[vc_row][vc_column][custom_inner_menus select_menu="project"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][single_project_block_1 heading="Ntungamo – Mirama Hills Road Construction" implementor="Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA)" target_group="Importers and exporters in East Africa" project_value="US$ 22,000,000" implementation_period="2015 – 2017" download_btn_text="Download Project PDF" download_btn_link="#url"]The Mirama Hills road route offers a shorter and less difficult route to Rwanda than passing through the Katuna/Gatuna border post. This unpaved section of 37 Km of Northern Corridor road network was a major constraint to the better operationalisation of a one stop border post at Kagitumba and Mirama Hills is expected to decrease the time for goods to be transported between Kampala and Kigali and increase the volume of traffic using this route. What: The project focuses on upgrading and paving of the road to bitumen standards from Ntungamo to Mirama Hills Border (approx 37 Km long). The works consist of upgrading the road from gravel to Class II Bitumen Standard, with 7m-wide carriageway of asphalt concrete surfacing and 2No. 1.5m-wide double surface dressed shoulders. How: TMA is providing financial assistance to the Government of Uganda (GoU) to assist in the financing of the project. The Works will be executed by a Construction firm and Quality Assurance will be ensured through permanent supervision of works backed up by Project Managers from UNRA and TMA. Both the Project Managers and Consultancy supervision firm will report to the UNRA/TMA joint established Technical Oversight Committee (TOC), which will approve all project implementation decisions.
