More than 350 km of Madagascar’s roads will be fully rehabilitated thanks to the joint EU-Madagascar project started last week. Initiative appears to be the largest in terms of EU financing for Madagascar in 60 years with a total budget of €236m. It is also funded by European Investment Bank (EIB) loans.
Firstly, international specialists in cooperating with local workers will recover 245 km of the Ambanja-Antsiranana section (Diana region in the north of the island), making possible the permanent opening of the road, even in the rainy season.
Moreover, 115 km of road RN13 between Fort Dauphin and Ambovombe in the south is planned to be recovered, says in a statement made by European Commission.
