En Rdc : Une route réhabilitée permet de réduire les coûts de transport et de propulser le commerce

Quote:

Depuis la fin des travaux de réhabilitation effectués sur la RN4 entre Kisangani et Beni (au Nord-Kivu), la reprise du trafic routier fait de l’ombre aux avions qui jusque-là transportaient l’essentiel des marchandises dans cette zone de l’Est de la République démocratique du Congo, note un communiqué de la Banque mondiale. Sur l’avenue du stade, au centre-ville de Butembo, des matelas emballés dans des sacs en plastique, des paniers d’oignons et d’ail ainsi que diverses marchandises jonchent le sol. Dans le plus grand désordre, des manutentionnaires chargent des sacs de haricot dans des véhicules poids-lourds. Sur chacun d’eux, on peut lire « Kisangani Express ».


« On ne manque jamais un véhicule à charger. C’est comme ça qu’on gagne notre vie ici », explique, tout haletant, Bamimbi Vumi, un chargeur très affairé. Un parking improvisé s’est installé ici depuis la fin de l’année 2008, juste à côté du bureau détaché de la plus grande des compagnies de transport terrestre des biens et des personnes, qui assure la liaison entre Butembo et Kisangani. Il y a quelques mois encore, on ne voyait guère de passagers se bousculer pour monter sur les véhicules et parcourir les 900 km qui séparent les deux villes.

Les transporteurs aériens en perte de vitesse

Il sied de souligner qu’avant la réhabilitation de cette route, le transport des personnes et des marchandises s’effectuait en grande partie par avion. Les transporteurs aériens régnaient alors en maîtres, mais leur marché est en chute libre depuis les travaux de réhabilitation effectués au coût de 55 millions de dollars américains dans le cadre du Projet d’urgence de soutien au processus de réunification économique et sociale (PUSPRES), financé par la Banque mondiale. « Les opérateurs des véhicules sur Kisangani bloquent vraiment notre marché », se plaint Dominique Mbavumoja, chef d’agence de la compagnie Mango Airline. « On est au bord de la fermeture, mais on imagine des stratégies pour garder les clients. »

Des 13 compagnies aériennes qui opéraient entre 2000 et 2005, seules trois essayent encore de résister

« Que voulez vous ? Le client voit où se trouve son intérêt. Et d’ailleurs, notre gouvernement a interdit le vol des Antonov depuis longtemps », argumente Pascal Karungu, vice-président de l’ACCO (Association des chauffeurs du Congo), pour qui le transport aérien « rapportait surtout aux pilotes étrangers alors que maintenant , ce sont nos chauffeurs qui en profitent ». « Avant, nous taxions 1 kilo de fret à 1,4 USD, mais les camionneurs sont venus et ont diminué le prix jusqu’à 0,5 USD le kilo.

Certains descendent même jusqu’à 0,25 USD », affirme Muyisa Kambine, responsable du marketing à la compagnie Galaxie Kavatsi. « Avant que les transporteurs routiers n’entrent dans la danse, nous acheminions entre 150 et 200 tonnes de marchandises diverses par mois sur Kisangani. Maintenant, c’est autour de 29 tonnes », affirme, Dominique Mbafumoya.

Kisangani-Beni : la nouvelle route permet des échanges commerciaux La place communément appelée « Parking de Bafwasende », non loin du marché central de Kisangani, a retrouvé son ambiance d’antan. Ici, des dizaines de camions débarquent et embarquent tous les jours des centaines de passagers et des tonnes des marchandises en partance ou en provenance de Beni, Butembo, Goma, Bunia, Niania, etc. Il y a plus de 10 ans que les Boyomais (habitants de Kisangani), n’avaient plus droit à un tel spectacle. Ce parking avait disparu, les gros camions aussi.

Depuis plus de six mois, la réhabilitation de la route Kisangani-Beni a fait revenir ces véhicules dans les rues de la ville et le parking principal revit. Le chef-lieu de la Province orientale est à nouveau relié par route à Beni dans la province voisine du Nord-Kivu. Deux jours pour les camions et un seul pour les voitures et les jeeps suffisent pour effectuer ce trajet dont le coût a sensiblement baissé : 25 à 30 dollars contre 250 par avion.

Du coup, les échanges commerciaux s’intensifient entre les deux villes. Grâce à cette route, de nombreux jeunes gagnent désormais leur vie en travaillant pour leur propre compte. Le marché de la ville reçoit à bon prix diverses marchandises : ciment, tôles, matériel de construction, choux, pommes de terre, haricots, poissons salés, etc. De Kisangani, partent aussi divers produits manufacturés : laits de beauté, bière, savons, tomates, sardines… venus pour la plupart par bateau de Kinshasa, la capitale. « Nous apprécions beaucoup les efforts du gouvernement pour la réhabilitation de cette voie, colonne vertébrale de l’économie de notre province », se réjouit Robert Osundja Bawa, directeur de la Fédération des entreprises du Congo, à Kisangani.

Approuvé en 2003, le projet PUSPRES a pour objectif d’aider le gouvernement congolais dans ses efforts visant à réunifier les provinces de l’Est au reste du pays. Le projet vise également à accroître l’accès aux infrastructures de base et les services sociaux pour les populations des provinces Orientale, du Maniema, du Nord et du Sud-Kivu, de l’Equateur, du Nord-Katanga, du Kasaï Oriental Nord. Le projet devrait être achevé en septembre 2010.

In the DRC: A rehabilitated road reduces transport costs and propel trade


Quote:

Since the end of rehabilitation work done on the N4 between Kisangani and Beni (North Kivu), the resumption of traffic because of the shadow planes which had hitherto carried the bulk of freight in the area of the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, notes a statement from the World Bank. On Avenue of the stadium in downtown Butembo, mattresses wrapped in plastic bags, baskets of onions and garlic and various goods scattered on the ground. In the greatest confusion, handlers loading bags of beans in heavy-weight vehicles. On each, you can read "Kisangani Express.


"It never fails to load a vehicle. That's how we earn our living here, "said, panting, Bamimbi Vumi, charger very busy. A makeshift parking moved here from the end of 2008, just outside the office posted the largest companies in land transport of goods and people, who liaises between Butembo and Kisangani. A few months ago, we saw no passengers scramble to get on the vehicle and walk the 900 km distance between the two cities.

Airlines slowing

It should be noted that before the rehabilitation of the highway, transporting people and goods was performed largely by air. The airlines then reigned supreme, but their market is in freefall since the rehabilitation work carried out at a cost of 55 million U.S. dollars under the Project's emergency support to the process of economic and social reunification (EESRSP) Financed by the World Bank. "Operators of vehicles on Kisangani block really our market," complains Dominique Mbavumoja, branch manager of the company Mango Airline. "We are on the verge of closure, but we imagine strategies for customer retention. "

Of the 13 airlines that operated between 2000 and 2005, only three are still trying to resist

"What do you want? The customer sees where his interest. And besides, our government has banned the flight of Antonov long time, "argues Pascal Karungu, vice president of ACCO (Association Driver of the Congo), for which air transport" related primarily to foreign pilots while now are our drivers who benefit. " "Before, we taxions 1 kilogram of cargo to 1.4 USD, but the truck came and dropped the price to U.S. $ 0.5 per kilo.

Some even come down $ 0.25, "says Muyisa Kambine, head of marketing at the company Galaxie KAVATSI. "Before that motor carriers entering the dance, we were moving between 150 and 200 tonnes of cargo per month Kisangani. Now it is around 29 tons, "says Dominique Mbafumoya.

Kisangani-Beni: The new road allows trade Place commonly called "Parking Bafwasende, near the central market in Kisangani, has regained its ambience. Here, dozens of trucks arrive and board every day hundreds of passengers and tons of goods leaving or coming from Beni, Butembo, Goma, Bunia, nurse, etc.. There are over 10 years that Boyoma (inhabitants of Kisangani), had no right to such a spectacle. This car had disappeared, big trucks too.

For more than six months, the rehabilitation of the Kisangani-Beni road has brought back the vehicles in the streets of the city and saw the main car park. The capital of Eastern Province is again connected by road to Beni in the neighboring province of North Kivu. Two days for trucks and one for cars and jeeps are enough to make this trip the cost has decreased significantly: 25 to 30 dollars against 250 by air.

Suddenly, the intensifying trade between the two cities. Through this route, many young people now earn their living by working for their own account. The market town receives various cheap goods: cement, sheet metal, construction materials, cabbage, potatoes, beans, salted fish, etc.. In Kisangani, leaving as diverse manufactured products: milk beauty, beer, soap, tomatoes, sardines ... came mostly by boat from Kinshasa, the capital. "We appreciate the government's efforts to rehabilitate this way, the backbone of the economy of our province," said Robert Osundja Bawa, Director of the Federation des Entreprises du Congo, Kisangani.

Approved in 2003, the EESRSP project aims to assist the Congolese government in its efforts to reunify the eastern provinces in the country. The project also aims to increase access to basic infrastructure and social services for the populations of Eastern provinces of Maniema, North and South Kivu, Equateur, northern Katanga, Kasai Oriental North. The project should be completed in September 2010.

@ DENICE,

Which news portrays things to be good?


I'm well aware of the challenges the country faces. i know how bad it things are.

The country is very big, the country is broke , the country doesn't even produce 500,000 tonnes of Copper[ it heart], the country's agriculture is very low, the country's social needs[ hospitals, schools, housing] are in intolerable shapes.
The Infrastructures are nightmares. the little industries the contry had,most have stoped to operate.

The country is 66 million people, and not to long ago, coming from a war of agression

The country is building everything form scratch.

It will be long journey. the scale, the coast, and the size of the reconstruction is unmatched by any country on the continent even in the world.

I don't see any problem with an airport having a presidential pavillon. I have seen this in many airports. This is where the president and other governement dignatories hold press conference when they can from and go on foreign trips. But I agree with the cost as being exhorbitant, $11 million is too much.

Same for me, I have the feeling that if this is the final sketch of the terminal, then itis just way too small. I will wait to see until the contract is awarded to see the final design. I just hope that I am wromg in what I saw. This airport will also need a second runaway.

I like everything except for presidential pavilions. We have to start somewhere. There is space left for expansion; Second runway and terminal.

Base on the traffic there is no need for extra huge terminal. This is a good start phase one…… enough space left for expanssion that's all we need.

It's suppose to be a 30 years expansion process turning it into the largest airport in Africa, that was stated by the authority last year. I really like it seems inviting and unqiue not granduer with alot of green around.
