The Project consists of the rehabilitation and widening of 20 km of the RN3 road, between the port of Douala and Yaoundé, Cameroon. This road is overloaded with the increasing heavy and lighter urban short-distance traffic, with adverse effects on pedestrian and two-wheel safety and the environment. This situation will be exacerbated through the implementation of the CEMAC Regional Transport and Transit Facilitation Programme, which aims at facilitating the regional trade among the six CEMAC member states (Gabon, Cameroon, CAR, Chad, the Republic of the Congo and Equatorial Guinea).

 
The EU-AITF grant has been used as an interest rate subsidy for the AFD project Access to Douala. The interest rate subsidy is a EUR 5,700,000 (5,674,673) subsidy, which corresponds to a 1% interest rebate.
