METRO SYSTEM

The Abidjan Metro, a 37.5-kilometer (23-mile) light rail network serving the Ivorian city of Abidjan, will connect the town of Ayama North to Port-Bouet in Southern Abidjan in 50 minutes stopping at 20 stations. The construction began in November of 2017, with the beginning of passenger service anticipated in 2022. The transport capacity for passengers is 500,000 per day.

A consortium of French groups was selected to carry out the works: Bouygues Travaux Publics for civil engineering, Colas Rail for tracks and systems, Alstom for trains and signaling and Keolis (a subsidiary of SNCF) for the operation and maintenance. Additional studies are being finalized. (Stage 1 stations)

The construction of the 4th bridge to facilitate access to Yopougon from the rest of the city have started in August 2018. It includes a set of road infrastructure, 7.2 km total length that starts from Yopougon and will stretch into the towns of Attecoubé and Adjamé and open a new road access to Plateau and to the southern zone of Abidjan and especially to the port of Abidjan.

In the long term, the structure will present, on the Yopougon side, a 2 Ă— 3-lane roadway (separated by a 20-meter central reservation for the passage of line 2 of the Abidjan urban train to connect Yopougon and Bingerville), three interchanges on the main roads of the municipality crossed by the bridge and a toll platform giving access to the bridge itself.

At the Attécoubé section, the bridge will be built over 1.4 km and will land via two ramps at the Sebroko junction. The work then stretches towards Adjamé as far as Boulevard Nangui Abrogoua, which it crosses via a tunnel to reach the Indénié crossroads.

Delivery is expected at the end of August 2020.

In order to further curb the traffic congestion in Abidjan, there are plans to construct a second metro line.
