[TG] Togo | road infrastructure

République togolaise




Togo is a small country in western Africa. It's sandwiched between Ghana on the west and Benin on the east, with a narrow coastal strip and a border with Burkina Faso in the north.

The capital of Lomé is located directly at the Ghana border. It's only a 50 kilometer drive to get from Ghana to Benin through Togo at Lomé, most of the route is suburban.

Togos road network is not very extensive. Main roads are paved. There are only a few four-lane highways in Lomé and one six-lane boulevard around the city center.

1. Six-lane boulevard around the city center of Lomé.


2. The four-lane coastal highway. It's only four lanes for a few kilometers.


3. New multilane road under construction in the northern suburbs.

I knew Togo was narrow, but I didn't realise it was only 50km across at points.

The Lomé bypass has been completed last year. It features two diamond interchanges, likely the first grade-separated interchanges in Togo. It was captured on Google Earth imagery, dated 17 January 2015.
