Central Multimodal Transport Corridor


This programme entails the upgrading and modernization of roads between Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi and the Democratic Republic of Congo in order to improve transport efficiency in the region. More specifically the modernization of 176 kilometres of highway and upgrading of 890 kilometres of road comprising five road-related smart corridor modules, including the creation of seven one-stop border posts.

Since the transport system will be more efficient, people and goods will easily cross borders, while transport capacities and regional trade will increase. This will add to cost savings and speed up regional integration in East Africa.
