BUILD A NORTH COTONOU BYPASS

Contact
Cotonou Bypass

The smooth and efficient movement of goods and people throughout Benin is an important factor in the country’s economic development. The Government therefore plans to modernise Cotonou’s road network by building a bypass to the capital’s northeast and a new bridge across Lake Nokoué. This project will reduce congestion across the city, thereby facilitating transit of goods and people.
