Launched in 2013 by the Egyptian Government and the NEPAD Agency, the River Nile Transport Corridor Project aims at establishing a navigational route between Lake Victoria and the Mediterranean Sea through River Nile. The Corridor will promote intermodal transport by integrating river, rail and road transport facilities along the Nile River and to develop river management capacity. Intermodal transport integration will include sections along the Trans-Africa Highway (Cape Town–Cairo, Lagos-Mombasa, Dakar-Ndjamena-Djibouti and Cairo-Dakar), various railway lines, as well as the big harbours in Alexandria, Suez Canal, Mombasa and Dar es Salaam.
When completed in 2024, the Corridor is expected to increase trade and boost regional integration.Associated Website(s)http://www.nepad.org/content/construction-navigational-line-between-lake-victori…
