According to the officials of the Iranian company, the site will be delivered subject to the resolution of some compensation problems for residents of KP 63 to KP 64.5, which are still pending before the administration of Cameroon.

Noteworthy, these compensations coupled with the difficulties and technical failures of Kayson Inc, were moreover the main reasons for the delay in the construction of this road project which begun back in October 2012 according to data from the Ministry of Public Works of Cameroon (Ministère des Travaux Publics de Cameroun).

Therefore, if the deadline of September is respected, the project implementation will have taken approximately 9 years to complete.

Boost to trade between Cameroon and DRC

The delivery of this road, which links Cameroon to the neighboring Democratic Republic of Congo, will help boost trade between the two nations, as it is a link in the Sangmélima-Ouesso cross-border.
