Abidjan-Lagos Corridor Highway Development


The Abidjan-Lagos Road Corridor is a project that aims to build a six-lane supranational highway, with components to transform it into an economic development corridor to connect Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, Togo, Benin, and Nigeria, thus facilitating cross-port links, free movement and the improvement of cross-border economic exchanges between the five ECOWAS Member States.

The project is reportedly a key element of the Second Priority Action Plan of the Programme for Infrastructure Development in Africa (PIDA-PAP II), and it is also a priority under the new ECOWAS Vision 2050, which, among other objectives, aims to make ECOWAS a fully integrated and interconnected economic region.


Once completed, the corridor which is a component of the Dakar-Lagos Corridor and forms an important part of the Trans-African Highway Network, as well as a top priority of the 25-year ECOWAS Regional Infrastructure Development Master Plan, will boost trade (a catalyst for the AfCFTA), encourage investment in other economic sectors, and create job opportunities for citizens of member states.
