Work is now underway on the 780km highway connecting Gabon’s capital Libreville with the city of Franceville in the east of the country. The project is costing US$1.1 billion and is due for completion in 2023.

The work is being handled by Société autoroutière du Gabon (SAG), which has a 30-year concession for the Transgabonaise route. Improving the highway is expected to help develop Gabon’s economy, providing an important transport route for goods.
