Following the completion of the 5th bridge in August 2023, Côte d'Ivoire is providing several mobility infrastructures to support the logistical implications of the CAN. These infrastructures will also serve to relieve congestion on the road network of greater Abidjan.

Côte d'Ivoire today announced the opening to traffic of the Y4 bypass expressway, the 4th Abidjan bridge, the East-West exit roads, the Abobo tunnel and the Macaci interchange.

These projects, which began a few years ago, are part of the Abidjan Urban Transport Project (PTUA), a massive road infrastructure investment plan co-financed by the African Development Bank (ADB), the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the Ivorian government.

They are also key infrastructures for facilitating mobility during the CAN, the continental soccer extravaganza that Côte d'Ivoire is hosting in a few days' time.

It should be noted that the 4th bridge incorporates lanes reserved for the BRT, another major mobility project initiated to expand the public transport service in order to take many personal vehicles off the road. It will be completed by the French-funded Abidjan metro, on which physical work is about to begin.
