Infrastructure/Senegal: President Sall inaugurates key road

Dakar, Senegal - Senegal's President Macky Sall Tuesday inaugurated a road that links Saint-Louis in the northern part of the country to Rosso, the river border with Mauritania.

The road, which cost over 36 billion CFA Franc (US$74.9 million) to rehabilitate, was financed by the European Union (EU).

The rehabilitation of the 127-km of road is aimed at opening up several areas in Senegal.

President Sall has kick-started a vast road infrastructure programme under his infrastructure policy.

Under the programme, the existing road network will be rehabilitated and expanded to service remote areas and improve transportation.
