The Road Fund Administration (RFA), the Roads Authority (RA), and the Walvis Bay Municipality have signed an agreement to upgrade and expand the road network leading to the port.

This is to ensure continuous and timely upkeep of the roads used by cargo traffic destined for local, regional, and international markets.

Namibia is positioning itself to become a gateway to the southern African economic market.

With the expansion of the port of Walvis Bay, more cargo volumes pass through the harbour town destined for neighbouring countries, increasing the usage of Walvis Bay's road networks leading to the port.

Thus, the N$248 million agreement between the three institutions will ensure the smooth flow of cargo in and out of the country.

The project will commence during the current financial year.
