Conakry Urban Mobility (Transport) Master Plan

I can’t understand the justification to spend so much on old congested 7.0 km strip of land, instead of building new developments either north or south of it.
The “Phenomenon of Achieving Big” is dangerous for the underdeveloped countries. Guinea is wasting too much resources from its good growth (6%) of its $ 11 bln GDP for an urban fantasy. In addition, there is no economic opportunities by upgrading the old districts, despite the fact that we have to enhance the living of their growing population (3%), but should be done at a reasonable cost. Guinea has to work on their Economy which has lowest competences on African scale.¬† Adil

After 2 and a half years of work in Conakry, the transport master plan of the city is finally voted and approved by the Guinean government. Planning a multimodal and integrated approach of public transport and mass transit, the plan includes multi-scale mobility plans, from the metro area to the sub-district, integrating walkability and road safety with intermodality and urban logistics. It is indeed a priority to associate every infrastructure project for mass transit with reserved pedestrian lanes, safe intersections and rehabilitated streets

The transport master plan of Conakry also brings a holistic mobility approach for the capital of Guinea and aims to apply Transit Oriented Development, mass transit development, walkability and modal shift from roads to rails for urban logistics to a typical monocentric African metropolis that is about to double its urban population from 2.5 to 5 million by 2040, on a narrow peninsula of 45 km long.

The Urban Mobility Plan of Conakry is a holistic transport master plan for the capital of Guinea that aims to apply Transit Oriented Development, mass transit development, walkability and modal shift from roads to rails for urban logistics to a typical monocentric African metropolis that is about to double its urban population from 2.5 to 5 million by 2040, on a narrow peninsula of 45 km long. The master plan study , funded by the EU (PAST program), was elaborated by Egis and Louis Berger, with Sebastien Goethals as project manager (director of Citilinks).
