About 1,000 kilometres separate Abidjan (Ivory Coast) from Lagos (Nigeria).
This is a strategic corridor in West Africa: here we may find the main economic centers (Abidjan, Accra, Lomé, Cotonou and Lagos) and the most important main roads and railways, and it is also the most densely populated area of the subregion. In fact, 75% of the economic activity of the subregion develops along this axis.
It is in this context that CEDEAO (Economic Community of West African States), with the support of the African Development Bank, has launched a tender for the construction of the motorway that will cross five countries (Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana, Togo, Benin and Nigeria) .
The project was divided into three lots - NRV will work on the design for lot 1. This is the 300 km stretch between Abidjan and Takoradi (Ghana). NRV joins French SETEC in a consortium that includes two local consultants: one from the Ivory Coast and another one from Ghana.
NRV's participation in this important project is the result of a strengthened presence in the West African market. Work began in early April with the first meetings with local entities.
