Mora-Dabanga-Kousseri Road: Work Resumption Plan Finalised

The Minister of Public Works held a working session with World Bank officials in Yaounde on November 11, 2016.


Work on the Mora-Dabanga (62 km) and Dabanga-Kousseri (150 km) highway in the Far North Region is set to resume in 2017. The number of working sessions on the government side as well as the World Bank is being increased, with stakeholders committed to restart work on the highway after terrorist attacked the Chinese Sinohydro company working on the site in 2014.

The Minister of Public Works, Emmanuel Nganou Djoumessi and World Bank officials, led by the Director of Operations in Cameroon, Elisabeth Huybens, held a working session in Yaounde on November 11, 2016 with focus on four issues. Elisabeth Huybens and her team were interested in coordination and communication mechanisms, compensation of the affected population, the mobilization of counterpart funds and the displacement of art works. We are in the finishing stage and coordination and communication strategies need to be coherent,” World Bank officials noted.

The Minister of Public Works and the Military Engineering Corps told the World Bank team that efforts were in place for the smooth re-takeoff of the project. “Minister Nganou Djoumessi disclosed that a steering committee for the project will be meeting any time soon. Administrative, traditional and local authorities are also being briefed on the imminent restart of the project. It is not a new project and compensation issues should not be a problem, they explain.
