Bouaké-Bassawa-Sandégué-Tanda road in Côte d’Ivoire

Rendel has been appointed by a major contactor on the development on the Bouaké-Bassawa-Sandégué-Tanda road in Côte d’Ivoire. Rendel will be carrying out the review of the project design and documents, to check for completeness and relevance, as well as a high level audit of quantities of the Bill of Quantities.

The project forms part of the Government of Côte d'Ivoire’s general policy for the development of the national road network. The government has launched the "Technical, Economic and Environmental and Social Impact Studies for the development of the Bouaké-Bassawa-Sandégué-Tanda road", on behalf of the Ministry of Economic Infrastructure, represented by the Road Management Agency (AGEROUTE) and financed by the West African Development Bank (BOAD) and the State Budget of Côte d'Ivoire.

The Bouaké-Bassawa-Sandégué-Tanda road is part of the A10 road corridor and is one of the priority access routes identified by the State of Côte d'Ivoire. The road is one of the unpaved links on the international road connecting Liberia to Ghana via the cities of Man, Séguéla, Mankono, Bouaké and Tanda. The total length of the proposed A10 alignment between Bouaké and Tanda is 245 km.

The project includes a new or upgraded pavement, large volume of the earthworks, over 250 culverts, 5 bridges and a number of other road assets and structures within the rural and urban sections of the road.
