Roads and transport projects play a pivotal role in enhancing the performance of key economic sectors and improving the living standards of local communities in developing countries. In recognizing this role, ADFD signed a loan agreement with the government of Gambia to finance the reconstruction and upgrading of the Laminkoto – Passimus road. The road will play an essential role in increasing trade between Gambia’s cities through connecting all major cities with each other through the re-construction of an asphalt road to international standards. It will also provide the residents with safe and fast transport means to the rest of the country. This will improve trade and facilitate easy access to services which will have a positive impact both socially and economically on the project area in particular and Gambia in general as the project is located in a fertile area rich in agriculture and cattle breeding. The project consists of reconstructing and upgrading the 121.3 km Laminkoto – Passimus Road stretching along the north bank of the Gambia River towards the east of the country. The road is single carriageway with both directions having a width of 7 meters, in addition to 1.5 meters wide shoulders on both sides.
