New road projects are planned for Morocco’s Casablanca region in 2024. Work will start on a new highway linking Berrechid and Tit Mellil as well as the Casablanca bypass, while work will commence on the final stretches of the highway linking Berrechid with Casablanca.

A steady increase in the numbers of vehicles on Morocco’s roads has seen existing links suffer heavy congestion. The area to the south of Casablanca does suffer heavy traffic volumes at peak periods, particularly around the international airport, with these road works helping to lower congestion. The Casablanca region is one of the most economically active areas for Morocco.

In addition, plans are being drawn up for the US$494 million highway to connect Casablanca and Rabat. The 60km highway should be complete by 2026 and the work is being managed jointly by the Ministry of the Interior and the country’s road firm, Autoroutes du Maroc (ADM). The new highway will pass close to the new stadium at Benslimane, which will be one of the six being used for the 2025 African Cup of Nations and for co-hosting the 2030 World Cup.

These projects are all being managed by ADM. An increase of 3% to $375.4 million is being seen for ADM’s 2024 budget compared with 2023.
