Africa’s Mega Infrastructure Project: The Trans-African Highway Network Nears Completion

The Trans-African Highway Network, Africa’s ambitious mega infrastructure project, is progressing swiftly with most sections expected to be completed shortly. Envisaged over 40 years ago by the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA), the African Development Bank (AfDB), and the African Union, in conjunction with regional international communities, this network of highways is intended to connect all corners of Africa from north to south and east to west.

First proposed in 1971, the plan aims to boost internal trade on the continent by building nine roads linking major cities across Africa, collectively measuring nearly 60,000 km. While progress has been slow, the completion of this project will mark a new dawn for intra-African trade.

One of the nine planned roads is already complete – the 4,400 km Trans-Sahelian Highway, which runs through seven countries, connecting Dakar, Senegal to Ndjamena, Chad. More than half of the network has been paved, although maintenance remains a work in progress. The other eight highways are progressing steadily, with three expected to be completed shortly.
