[RMM] Mali | road infrastructure

Mali is a country that has a relatively poor road infrastructure and paved roads that connect major cities only. Bamako has a 2x2 km approach roads to the center of the cross congested streets.

Neat, pro-looking roads for such a poor and remote country. And this is epic:

A third bridge (1.4*km long, 24 m large, 4-lane with 2 motorcycle and 2 pedestrian sections) is being built to reduce downtown congestion, notably by trucks. Bamako is the fastest growing city in Africa, traffic increasing rapidly so third bridge is very reasonable solution.

Seems that this country has no road signs in colour so all categories of roads has white signs. I could not find any sign on expressways in southern part of the city to see what is colour.

Africa will experience major infrastructural problems if current trends of urbanization continue. Look at Khartoum for example, the suburb Omdurman is already bigger than the principal city! Similar stuff is happening throughout Africa.

New bridge across the Niger River in eastern Bamako. It's a divided highway with a grade-separated interchange at either end.

I'm guessing that Mali is a former French Colony by looking at their signage?

Why else would they write in French?

RN6 Bamako - Ségou

Apparently they are twinning 227 kilometers of RN6 from Bamako to Ségou.

http://maliactu.net/autoroute-de-bam...vaux-realises/

It is called an "autoroute", but recent Google Earth imagery suggest it's a twinning project, without grade-separation.

Construction is executed by the China Road and Bridge Corporation and started in late 2010, but was halted soon after due to a coup. It was resumed in June 2012. The first phase should completed by February 2016.

The modernized N6 between Bamako and Segou has one carriageway with a provision for a second. The road markings are already applied for 2x2.
