ECOWAS PPDU To Validate Report On Dakar-Lagos Corridor Study
By Robert Dixon

MONROVIA, September 7 (LINA) - The Economic Community of  West African States (ECOWAS) Project Preparation and Development Unit (PPDU) is expected  to validate the final draft report of a study on the Dakar-Lagos Corridor Missing links.

It will take effect following a two-day validation workshop which started at a local hotel in Monrovia Tuesday bringing together experts from ECOWAS member states and other stakeholders.

Speaking at the opening of the workshop, the Commissioner for Infrastructure at the ECOWAS Commission, Antoinette Weeks, said the specific objective of the study is to establish a complete inventory of the corridor missing links.

She noted that it will also look at the motorability of the corridor with the aim of focusing resources on the rehabilitation of the road corridor which supports regional and inter-regional traffic flow and promote trade within the region.

Weeks pointed out that the study will determine an appropriate engineering solution for the upgrading of the entire corridor and will also undertake an economic, social and environmental appraisal for the consideration of investment options.

She noted that the study will compliment and provide a solid foundation for the upcoming detailed engineering design on the Abidjan-Lagos (Phase 1) and Dakar –Abidjan (Phase2) highways.
