The objectives of the Transport Corridors Improvement Project for Mali are to: (a) enhance international transport through improvement of transport corridors linking Mali to the coastal countries of West Africa by rail and road respectively; and (b) sustain accessibility of the northern regions of the Borrower's territory. The main reasons for the changes are to: (i) fund a contract overrun on Bamako - Bougouni road works, which are being successfully executed; (ii) reduce road works on Sevare - Gao from 407 km to an aggregate 85 km of the most deteriorated sections to continue to meet the objective of providing land access to the northern region; and (iii) extend the project closing date to complete the works on Sevare - Gao road agreed within the restructured project.
