Project Description
The project consists of widening the national road for a length of 200km linking Kasserine-Sidi Bouzid-Sfax, and improving the existing engineering structures along the route. The main goals of the project are: . The development of economic trade between the Governorates of Kasserine, Sidi Bouzid, Gafsa, the areas of Sfax and Gabes with the neighboring countries of Algeria and Lybia . . The improvement of the connections of the Governorates of Kasserine, Sidi Bouzid and Gafsa to the existing North-South Motorway network . The facilitation of regional connectivity between the regions, the strengthening of agricultural activities and the creation of jobs . The enhancement of the current transport network by strengthening the existing roads and avoiding congestion in those roads . The improvement of road safety This project is aligned with the general policy of the country aiming at: . Reducing regional inequalities . Providing the country with a modern infrastructure aiming to increase and facilitate the connectivity and exchanges between the interior regions and the coastal economic centers . Creating an economic and social dynamics encouraging investment in those regions by the modernization of local and interurban roads . Improving the economic trade with the neighboring countries The GP13 road evolves in a predominantly agricultural environment. The relief is flat at the origin of the road and hilly on the side of Kasserine. The road is flood-able in some areas requiring special treatment. Along the route, the road intercepts several classified roads (such as RN2, RN3, RR125, RR96, RR71, etc.) where it is necessary to treat these points of intersection. Several large flows are also intercepted and their crossings require the construction of bridges. The technical standard chosen in the Preliminary Design is the French Norm ARP. The design chosen corresponds to the type of road R80 and its main characteristics are the following: . 2 dual carriageways of 7m width . A central reserve (median strip) of 4 meters with two left shoulders of 1 . Two right shoulders of 2m and two berms of 1m each
