The 14th Bureau of China Hydropower and the Ministry of Public Works of Madagascar signed a commercial contract for the Tamatave Port Expressway Project.

The project is located in Tamatave Port, the largest port in Madagascar, with a total length of about 9.6 kilometers and a high-standard two-way four-lane design. The project duration is 24 months. It mainly includes construction contents such as coastal backfill, asphalt concrete pavement laying, bridges, culverts and drainage structures.

Tamatave is the largest port and second largest city in Madagascar. It undertakes more than 60% of the country's import and export business of commodities. Currently, it mainly transports goods to the capital Antananarivo and other areas through National Highway No. 2. The construction of the project aims to speed up the transportation of goods in and out of the port, improve the traffic conditions near the port, promote the upgrading of Tamatave city, and drive the local social and economic development.

This project is the first project undertaken by the 14th Hydropower Bureau since it entered the Madagascar market, which is supported by China's preferential loan, and will adopt Chinese technology and Chinese standards. The successful signing of the project will further consolidate the bureau's market share in Madagascar. Editor/Zhao E
