1. Project title: Construction of the Obala-Batchenga-Bouam road (280 km) 2. Location: The project is situated in the Centre and East regions. The itinerary links Obala (Centre) to Bouam (East) ; while ensuring the economic integration of the Northen regions, and the opening-up of Cameroon neighbouring markets, especially Chad and the Central African Republic via North Cameroon. This road crosses agro-industrial, forest and fishing zones in Cameroon. 3. Sector: Transport 4. State of preparation: Project aim: Executing works on the Obala-Mbgaba road section (lots 1, 2 and 3) for which the Cameroon Government has already conducted technical studies financed from own funds, then conducting studies and executing the Mbgaba-Bouam road section (lot 4) works. 5. Project background: The Obala-Batchenga-Bouam road (about 280 km) is a section of national road No1, current transit itinerary between Cameroon and neighbouring countries like Chad and the Central African Republic. The project is in four (4) lots as follows:  Lot 1: Obala – Batchenga – Nkolessong (80 km); currently under construction  Lot 2: Nkolessong-Nding (88 km); currently an earth road section with engineering structures to be constructed. An invitation to tender has already been issued for the execution of pavement works of this stretch of road.  Lot 3: Nding – Mbgaba (39,43 km); currently an earth road section with engineering structures to be constructed and for which updating studies are underway.  Lot 4: Mbgaba – Bouam (72 km) currently an earth road section with engineering structures to be constructed and for which updating studies are underway. Annual maintenance on this itinerary is below the required level, owing to insufficient budgetary resources. It should be noted that heavy traffic has increased on this road following the collapse, in December 2006, of the bridge over river Nyong at Abong Mbang. 6. Project justification: Once completed, this road would help to: a. At the economic level  Ensure communication between the South and the East on the one hand, and between Cameroon and the Republic of Chad and the CAR on the other hand;  Facilitate the transportation of goods in this region of high agricultural potentials.

Drainage works.  Reduce travel time. as well as the transportation system between the Northern and Southern regions. .Construction of bridging structures over various rivers.5 m shoulders. At the political level  Consolidate national unity through the establishment of permanent contacts with other regions of Cameroon. c.
