Name of the Project
Kasomeno-Mwenda toll road (KMTR) project.

The Duna Group is the project sponsor.

The project will be built by GED Africa, with the help of Agence Congolaise des Grands Travaux and Zambia Road Development Agency.

Project Description
The KMTR comprises the modernisation, construction and expansion of 184 km of road highway; the construction of a 345 m cable-stayed bridge over the border at the Luapula river; the construction of a one-stop border post, with accompanying warehousing and parking facilities; the delivery of a tolling system with associated infrastructure, and social infrastructure for community development.
