The Minister of Equipment, Transport, Logistics and Water, Abdelkader Amara, launched, on Tuesday, the works of the second phase of the tripling of the Casablanca – Berrechid highway & the Casablanca bypass highway and the inauguration of the new Oum Azza interchange.
This new interchange, built by Autoroutes du Maroc, aims to provide better service to the city of Rabat and its outskirts, to improve traffic flow and safety conditions, to participate in the development of this rapidly expanding area and, above all, to optimize the travel of its inhabitants. The project was carried out in 30 months and required an investment of MAD 72 million.
The Oum Azza interchange is equipped with six toll lanes for traffic coming from and going to Casablanca and two lanes for traffic coming from and going to Salé.
In addition, the works of the second phase of the tripling of the Casablanca – Berrechid motorway & the Casablanca bypass motorway were launched today.
This project, which concerns high-traffic motorway sections serving vital infrastructures and requiring the maintenance of 2X2 traffic, has been divided into 4 lots, two of which have been awarded to major Moroccan construction companies.
In addition to lane widening services, the project includes specific works according to a phasing system that will limit, as much as possible, the inconvenience caused to the customer-users of the Casablanca-Berrechid motorway and the Casablanca bypass motorway.
