Cameroon – Transport: Re-establishment of the Mundemba-Isangele-Akwa road, linking Cameroon to Nigeria

Written by Deckson N.

Traffic restoration work on the Mundemba-Isangele-Akwa axis in the south-west region was received in early March 2017 by an inter-ministerial team (Public Works, Public Contracts and Finance).

To sum up, the Ministry of Public Contracts indicates that the work carried out on this road now makes it possible to improve the level of service on a line of 66 kilometers. In terms of the cost of this work, the overall amount of the operation amounts to CFAF 249.6 million.

Main road to the Bakassi Peninsula, the Mundemba-Isangele-Akwa road, is highly strategic, both for security and economic reasons. The traffic restoration work thus carried out will make it possible to give relief to the commercial exchanges between the towns crossed by this road and between Cameroon and Nigeria.

“As proof of this,” says the client, “if yesterday to go from Mundemba to Isangele you had to spend 20,000 francs for three hours on a motorcycle because of its impracticability, today with the work done by The engineers of the Ministry of Public Works, it is in a vehicle that the journey is made in thirty minutes, a distance of 56.5 km to the height of 5000 francs only.
