Technical Assistance to the ECOWAS Commission for the Study on the Abidjan-Lagos Corridor Highway (2020-2022)
The 1,028-km six-lane homogeneous Highway from Abidjan to Lagos is a major Transport Infrastructure Project for Western Africa. The ECOWAS Commission ensures the implementation of the technical studies and related activities. These large-scale engineering studies, coupled with the development of a construction strategy and motorway operating procedures through PPP, are complex services to handle by contracting authorities and involve significant budgets. Furthermore, three Design and Engineering (D&E) firms are contracted to carry out the technical studies, dividing the corridor into three lots and requiring strong supervision to ensure effective coordination of the studies. Therefore, the aim of the Technical Assistance (TA) Services is to: (i) support the PIU with the diverse nature of studies being pursued under the Programme, (ii) serve as an interface with all stakeholders, (iii) support ECOWAS in anticipating urgent actions, and (iv) take the necessary decisions regarding technical, legal and financial expertise to allow ECOWAS and the authorised agencies of Member States to effectively manage all phases of each service component provided for in the study.
