Thats supposed to be for the Highway between Gare central-N'djili, Gare central-UPN.

No one talks about it anymore . I think because the deal was reduced from $9 billion to 6.

I was looking forward to that but it is what it is, nothing is quite clear when it comes to DRC. Even the 9 to 6 billion situation has got confusing if you really want to follow where the money is going and which projects it is going into.

As far as road network, the main opportunity we have to build a decent network of roadways and expressways is to invite construction companies on a basis of build, operate and transfer. Congolese construction companies should be given a guaranteed percent of the work on the same basis if they are strong enough to take advantage, bana mboka il fault to telema and compete.

On the main, the whole Japanese system is built on a network of toll roads, the plan if i recall correctly is that the toll roads will have paid for themselves for a 30-40 year period. The government need to learn to outsource and delegate some of the challenges of reconstruction. I also learnt that the huge Chinese effort is being constructed on near enough the same basis.

Look at this small road. we must build real raods. 2x2 for this busy and very important way.

Bas Congo is filled with Lime rocks, it also has Oil , but these stone aged Central government leaders don't know anything.

Leadership. That is the problem the country is facing. There is no way you can develop a country with clowns at the helm of the government.

I couldnt say more. This road is very dangerous and very small. It is probably one of the busiest road in the country. You have all the big trucks bringing goods from the port of Matadi and Boma to Kinshasa, you have those big trucks bringing cement, sugar to Kinshasa and woods to Matadi for export. The problem is once a car is dead on one side, there is a massaive traffic jam created. You cant even push the car on the side cause there is no space. Then you have to add all those big chinese trucks...it gets even more dangerous driving there.

i do however acknowledge that it will be a big challenge to widen the road entirely to a 2x2 road (assuming they even think about it). The problem is that you got cliff and ravines on the sides of the road, which makes it technologically challenging. Again it is a question of political will and money.

By the way, I will open a new thread with regards to the required infrastructure that could make the country challenge other capital cities in Africa.

I even think its should be 2x3. 2 lanes for trucks and busses only and other 4 for passangers.

Only the will is the problem. Money should not even be a problem.

Those cliffs and ravines are no problem to me (even though i never went to Engineering school). There are machines specialized to cut them (Only 3-5 machines will be enough. the rest use dynamites blow them up and there you have your way.


But needs to be done is to build a brand new 2x2 next to the existing one so that the Traffic is not disturbed during construction.

3 brigades for entire 350 km, 115 km /brigade, 1 unite /35 kms.

Labour salary $100/worker, $110/higher position worker, and have about a 20 supervisers and managers(engineers).

Have 2 aggregate and material and fuel supply stations. done deal.

I used to work for Econstriction, we build high way roads and residential ,
Building road its self is a easy job, most of the work is done by machines. I was a bob cat operator. In a space of one month we built a 3km road so I really dont understand how hard it is for the nation to build this road properaly.
