Titre : Tidjikja – Kiffa – Selibaby – Mali Border Road (Mauritania)

Pays de réalisation : Mauritanie

Date d’approbation : 08/12/2019

Bénéficiaire : Ministry of Equipment and Transport

The project aims at contributing to the development of land transport services on the main road network in the country, ensuring traffic safety, and stimulating trade between various regions of the country, and between Mauritania and neighboring countries, by providing an internal axis to improve the connection between the north, center and south of the country. The project will also contribute to the development of the areas adjacent to the road by increasing their accessibility, and the improvement of the economic and social conditions of their residents.

The project, which is expected to be completed by the end of 2022, comprises the construction of a road with six sections, extending from the city of Tidjikja to the Mali border, passing through several cities, most notably Kiffa and Selibaby, in addition to some subsidiary roads leading to towns and villages adjacent to the road, and a bridge over Oued Karakoro. The first section of the road extends from Tidjikja to Goudia with a length of about 92 km, the second from Goudia to Boumde؟d with a length of about 70 km, the third from Boumde؟d to Kiffa with a length of about 108 km, the fourth from Kiffa to Kankossa with a length of about 84 km, the fifth from Kankossa to Leboulli with a length of about 97 km, and the sixth from Leboulli to Gabou passing though Selibaby with a length of about 99 km

Coût du projet : KD 90.9 million
Montant du prêt : KD 52.0 million
(*) 1 KD is equivalant to about = 3.3227 USD

Financement : The Arab Fund’s loan covers about 57% of the total project cost. The Islamic Development Bank contributed to the coverage of the cost of the fourth section of the road with an amount of about KD 12.1 million (about 13%). The Mauritanian Government finances the third section of the road, and will cover the remaining cost of the project and any additional cost that may arise.
