[MA] Morocco | road infrastructure

The Moroccan highways company (ADM) has decided to accelerate the rhythm of per annum highway construction from 160km in the 2000-2006 period to 200km in the 2007-2012 stretch, i.e. a total of 1,420km.

According to the ADM annual report, 808 kilometers of new highways will be constructed by end 2010.

The 2005-2010 program includes the construction of new highway links between Marrakech and Agadir (233km, central south), Fès-Oujda (320km, center to east), Settat-Marrakech (145km, west to center)… as well as the completion of the highway linking Casablanca to El Jadida.

The report also forwards the amount of MAD 16Bn, around USD 2Bn, required to achieve this program, excluding the Fès-Oujda part. The larger part of the money will be provided by Arab and international banks and funds.

New motorway to link Fes-Oujda by 2010

A 328-Kilometer long motorway will link, as of 2010, the central city of Fès and the eastern town of Oujda, at the border with Algeria. The total cost of this project exceeds USD 1Bn.

Launched, here Tuesday, by king Mohammed VI, the construction works are expected to last 42 months.

Several national and international companies, namely, the Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development (USD 104.7Mn), Arab Fund for Economic and Social Development (USD 209.4Mn) and European Investment Bank (USD 230.4Mn) participate in the project.

The Islamic development Bank contributed with USD 125.6Mn while the Abu Dhabi Fund earmarked USD 26.1Mn, OPEC offered USD 26.1Mn and Moroccan government, besides The Hassan II Fund for Economic and social Development, dedicated some USD 232.7Mn to the project.

Once finished, the Fes-Oujda motorway will be included in the future Maghreban motorways network, linking Nouakchott (Mauritania) to Tobrouk(Libya).

The national motorways network which totals 640 Kms is to reach 1,420 kilometers by 2010.

Aren't the fonts the same as in France? And as I can see, the color of the signs is blue, but why is this sign white then?

The Moroccan motorways are very much inspired by France, even the road markings looks French.

It looks a lot of the older French fonts and signage. That is now rare in France, however i did saw some near Valenciennes and Lille last week.

as long as you re not on the highway it's blue on white. Once you're on the highway it's white on blue. This is the entryway to the highay

Purple on white would have been even more appealing. Too bad they didn't contact me for the design.
