[RM] Madagascar | road infrastructure

Madagascar


Madagascar is an island nation in the Indian Ocean, usually considered to be a part of Africa.

The road network is poorly developed. Owing due to French colonial influences, Madagascar has a numbered road network like most African countries. There are route nationales with numbers between N1 and N55. There are some suffixed routes as well. Most route nationales appear to be unpaved or in poor condition.

Autoroute Antananarivo - Toamasina

Several French-language sources on the internet suggest there is a new toll motorway (autoroute) under development in Madagascar. It would be a 300-350 kilometer long motorway from the capital city of Antananarivo to the coastal city of Toamasina. The new motorway will be constructed by China. This would be the first motorway in Madagascar.

Seriously, is every new motorway in Africa constructed by Chinese contractors?
Algeria, Ethiopia and now Madagascar ...

Was about time to open a Madagascar thread, though
