The Mozambican National Roads Administration (ANE) has embarked on a Regional Roads Investment Programme (RRIP). The objective of the programme is to bring important unpaved low-volume roads to an improved standard, thereby maximising transitability on the network, and reducing longer term maintenance costs. The concept of the programme is based on the “targeted interventions” (spot improvement) approach.
The Africa Community Access Programme (AFCAP) is assisting ANE with the implementation of the pilot projects. Support is being provided for the design of the road sections and technical monitoring of the performance of the roads over a two year period.
