[CAM] Cameroon | road infrastructure

Cameroon is a country of Central Africa. Main roads labels N1, 2,3 ... branch mainly from the capital Yaounde and the connecting end parts of the country. Some of the national roads are still not paved. The two largest cities Yaounde and Douala connects N3 national road. No highways, some of the 2x2 routes are in the two largest cities and bypass the town of Garoua.

It is interesting to note Cameroon has some toll roads, for example the Yaoundé - Douala highway.

Lots of road projects like this are payed by EU, France and so on. And if you got the money for certain project you have to spend all the money.
Just my idea. Not sure who finances road projects in Cameroon or who payed for this by-pass.

It looks like narrow gouge railroad that crosses Douala bay and passes through the Bonaberi suburb. Continues to a nearby plantation, suppose to be coffee plantation. Looks like a long time is not in use
