After the contract is signed, construction work on the three sites of the National Road 3 is expected to begin soon.

After talks with Proparco failed, Mintp reports that Guarantco, a member of the Private Infrastructure Development Group (PIDG), is currently the project’s new investor.

A proposal for a local currency guarantee (FCFA) and a solution that would allow it to help the country in the implementation of expropriations with a complementary funding facility was also confirmed by the new lender.

The new deal’s details (parties’ obligations, rents, and duration of the arrangement) are not known yet. The prior agreement was for a period of 20 years, which included two years of construction and eighteen years of operation. More than 300 direct and numerous indirect employment opportunities were expected to be created during construction.

The 14 automatic toll booths were expected to generate CFA7 billion in revenue in 2021 and CFA53.59 billion in 2039, based on a single CFA500 tariff, with an initial expenditure of CFA28.94 billion.
