Governor Adolf Lele L’Afrique reveals that to insure fast completion works will go on simultaneously in Bamenda and in Babajou.
The road has been described by many as the ” road of hell”, for some the “horse riding road”. This description is still used by Cameroonians to paint a clear image about the state of the road linking the West and the North West region of the country.
Presently, rehabilitation works are been operated along the stretch of road Babadjou-Bamenda with reports stipulating that the local population having properties along the 40km stretch were duly compensated paving the way for works to kick start officially.
In an interview granted the CRTV, Emmanuel Nganou Djoumessi Public Works Minister assures the people that preparations are rather accelerating ” about 31 billion frs has been set aside already as funding for the road…. 1 billion francs have been set aside too for the control mission…. the civil engineering crew will begin works by the end of this month of November”.
Going by the minister’s statement, all the necessary funding has been made available by the government to insure that by the end of 2018, the Bamenda- Babajou stretch of road is rendered operational for the population to make good use of it.
