According to the AfDB website:
The project development objective is to improve transport connectivity between Kenya and South Sudan thereby deepening regional integration and trade and contributing to alleviation of fragility by providing a more efficient, safe and effective cross-border transport system. The specific objective of the project is to improve road transport along the Lesseru – Nadapal – Juba corridor (Kenya/South Sudan) by reducing travel time, travel cost and improving road traffic safety along the project road sections.
he Lesseru – Kitale (55km) and Morpus - Lokichar Road (138km) sections form part of the Lesseru – Nadapal – Kapoeta - Juba (945km) (Kenya- South Sudan) corridor, a strategic regional route, interconnecting Kenya and South Sudan. Indeed, the road corridor buttresses the regional transport network by linking the Northern Corridor at Lesseru with the Lamu Port South Sudan Ethiopia Transport (LAPSSET) corridor at Lokichar.
