The Ministry of Public Works (Mintp) plans to allocate XAF14 billion to decentralized local authorities for road improvements and maintenance in 2024, according to a document seen by SBBC.

The funds will be divided between regional councils and communes, with XAF2 billion going to the 10 regions and XAF12 billion distributed among the 360 communes.

Each region will receive XAF200 million for the rehabilitation or construction of engineering structures, targeting a total of 119 km of roads. Meanwhile, over 1,200 km of roads are slated for upgrades or rehabilitation in the communes.

This move supports Mintp's ambitious national road infrastructure plan, which aims to deliver 800 km of new asphalt roads, 504 km of maintained asphalt roads, and 2,500 km of maintained earth roads in 2024.

To achieve these goals, Mintp secured a budget of XAF569 billion from Parliament, with XAF508 billion allocated for investment and XAF45 billion for the Road Fund.
