SENEGAL | Dakar | Blaise Diagne International Airport | 3million PAX | U/C



By Anne Paylor | September 13, 2012

A new international airport serving Dakar, Senegal will open in the first quarter of 2014, prime minister Abdul Mbaye told the country’s National Assembly this week.

Work on the new Aéroport International Blaise Diagne de Diass (AIBD) began in 2007 and was originally targeted for completion in late 2011.

The new airport is being developed at Diass, about 45 km. from Dakar, and will have an initial operating capacity to handle 3 million passengers a year from a single runway. A second phase of development could ultimately provide capacity for 10 million passengers a year with development of a second runway.

The airport is being built on a site of about 4,500 hectares, which dwarfs the existing Léopold Sédar Senghor International Airport (AILSS), just 9 km. from the center of Dakar, which is overflowing its 800-hectare site. Total development cost of AIBD is estimated to be €566 million ($725 million), funded largely by loans from a number of banks that reportedly include the African Development Bank, the French Development Agency, the West African Development Bank, and other banks from South Africa, Canada and Saudi Arabia.

A new urban center will be developed around the airport that the prime minister said would “contribute to the decongestion of the capital.”

Although government officials said last year the existing airport would be closed when the new airport opened, recent reports in the local media suggest it may at least initially “complement” AILSS.

In addition, the Senegal government announced last month that it planned to raise the level of regional airfields to open up the interior of the country.

Sorry in france, maybe you can use a translation programe.


Sénégal : l'autoroute à péage Dakar-Diamniadio fait débat



Les tarifs au péage de l’autoroute Dakar-Diamniadio, qui doit ouvrir le 1er août, divisent les automobilistes sénégalais.


Ouvrage très attendu des Sénégalais, qui déplorent les difficultés du trafic pour entrer à Dakar, la nouvelle autoroute à péage divise déjà les automobilistes, notamment en raison de son coût annoncé. Prévue pour le 1er août prochain, l’ouverture du dernier tronçon de cet axe routier, entre Dakar et Diamniadio, doit décongestioner fortement le trafic routier dakarois. Il a été annoncé à coups de publicité dans les quotidiens sénégalais par le groupe Senac SA, société chargée de gérer l’ouvrage, ainsi que par l’Agence nationale pour la promotion des investissements et grands travaux (Apix).

Le président directeur général d’Eiffage Sénégal qui a réalisé l’infrastructure, Gérard Senac, s’exprimant lors d’une rencontre avec des élus des localités traversées par l’ouvrage, estime déjà que les recettes journalières seront comprises entre 10 et 15 millions de F CFA (20 000 à 30 000 dollars) par jour alors que le péage s’applique jusqu’ici sur le premier tronçon, long de quelques kilomètres. Il en attend beaucoup plus avec l’ouverture du dernier tronçon reliant Dakar à Diamniadio. Pour un trajet d’une quarantaine de kilomètres, le tarif pour un passage est de 1 400 F CFA pour les voitures et taxis (soit environ 2,84 dollars), 800 F CFA pour les motos, 2 000 F CFA pour les « cars rapides » et minibus, 2 700 pour les autobus et camions.

Des avis mitigés

Certains automobilistes interrogés jugent ces tarifs élevés, d’autres estiment que l’ouvrage permet un gain de temps considérable et sont donc prêts à l’utiliser. « À ce prix, je ne compte pas prendre l’autoroute à péage, le carburant est cher, si je dois dépenser 2 800 F CFA pour aller au travail et revenir, je préfère prendre mon mal en patience dans les embouteillages », déclare Abass Faye, conducteur de petit véhicule. « Le tarif des véhicules de transport en commun est élevé, il réduit nos marges bénéficiaires », lance un transporteur.

En revanche, un employé de banque perçoit le gain de temps. « Avec les embouteillages, je suis obligé de prendre la route très tôt pour ne pas arriver en retard au bureau. Grâce à cette autoroute, je ne mettrai que quelques minutes pour arriver », espère-t-il. Un transporteur est lui aussi favorable au passage à l’autoroute à péage : « Il me permet de faire plus de voyages puisque je perds moins de temps. »

Dans leur annonce parue dans la presse, Senac SA et l'Apix tentent de faire comprendre aux automobilistes que « le nouveau temps de trajet entre Dakar et Diamniadio en conditions normales de confort et de sécurité est de 15 minutes, soit un gain de temps de 90 minutes qui correspond à une économie de sept litres pour un véhicule particulier, soit 6 000 F CFA environ ». Aux automobilistes d’apprécier.
