Progress of the work of rehabilitation of the section Lufimi-Kawango on RN 1. Thursday 16 April 2009, updated on Tuesday 14 April 2009



On 22 May 2008, the President of the Republic, Joseph Kabila, was formally launched the rehabilitation of the section-LUFIMI Kwango on National Route No. 1. Since then, the work that run by the French company SOGEA SATOM evolve normally. So Monday 13 April the coordinator for the visibility of the five sites, Mr. Jean-Marie KASSAMBA and the President of PAREC, Pastor Mulunda NGOI led a delegation of journalists and staff PAREC. The objective was to report on the progress of work.


The work involves the construction of a road that no longer existed. For Nicolas Morin, director of work SATOM SOGEA, "the principle of work is first to make a cement, a mixture of cement and sand, it is innovation. Then it will rebuild the platform before placing the asphalt. Finally comes the clean side of the road with all the horizontal and vertical by European standards, "he said. All for a shot estimated at nearly 40 million, financed by the European Development Fund (EDF).

To combat the effects of the water is a corrosive element, the new route was high compared to the old and SOGEA SATOM is also planting VETI green, Bandundu plant well known for their ability to fight against effects of heavy rain.

But fear as the technician SOGEA SATOM is overloaded trucks that destroy the road. Therefore it will install to monitor weighed axle trucks, 13 ton load is required, "says Morin.

SOGEA SATOM The company also supports the construction of bridges over rivers MAYINDOMBE (60m) and LUFIMI (40m).


At this stage over 16 km of roads were rehabilitated with a system called monolayer that has been added stones. Then 5 cm of asphalt will be added to the treatment of 30 cm made.

Once restored, this section with a length of 57.5 km, as the reconstruction of bridges over rivers MAYINDOMBE (60m) and LUFIMI (40m) will contribute significantly to the reconstruction efforts of the Congolese Government through five sites. Now people can move agricultural products to the capital.

To the President of the Association Peace and Reconstruction (PAREC), Pastor Daniel Mulunda NGOI it was imperative to visit this site to prove the effectiveness of the five sites above all that the next step for the "weapon against $ 100" is increase to Bandundu.

At the end of the work planned in February 2010, SOGEA SATOM ensure maintenance of the road for a year before returning permanently to the state responsible for the cleanup of roads.

Nice to see that infrastructure is improving...If they are doing with 4 lane for the whole length, this is even better. Do you now anything about a road from Kinshasa to Goma? AFAIK the only way to reach Goma from Kinshasa is by air...

P.S. I apologize if I offended any DRC forumer by some of my comments. People who are talking frankly sometimes are offending others unwillingly. I was sometimes offended by your comments, but I suppose that you were sincere...Anyway I really belive we can respect each other.
