Infrastructure development is a key driver of progress across the African continent and a critical enabler for productivity and sustainable economic growth. Countries like Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria and Ghana have allocated large chunks of their annual national expenditures to key infrastructural sectors like transport, energy and housing.
Hence, with an overall of 391 road projects in the pipeline valued at US$467.6 billion, Africa represents one of the most vivid and fast growing continent in the infrastructure development scenario.
The urgency of the main African governments to improve the land transportation derives from the high costs of transportation affecting the continent as a result of poor infrastructure. In fact, not only this is on average 50-175% higher than other parts of the world due to roads’ bad conditions and efficiency, but also bureaucracy results to be complicated and excessive.
