Ministry of Transportation Chad Projects

The website of the Department of Infrastructures and Transports Projects is designed to make available to citizens, our partners information on the organization and achievements of the Ministry. You will also find practical and useful information such as the calls for tender, ministry's agenda, and projects.

Formerly in charge of Public Works and Transport, the Ministry was responsible for implementing the Government’s policy in this area.

In 2005, the Department dubbed Ministry of Infrastructures has, among other missions, the implementation of all state infrastructure.

Through this institutional innovation, the Ministry of Infrastructure is carrying out its tasks effectively and efficiently, under the far-sighted directive of the Head of State, Idriss Deby Itno, where the search for the result has been highlighted.

In recent years, the Department has made significant progress in a number of areas.

In terms of road infrastructure, we went from 283 km of paved roads in 1990 to 1868 km completed or in progress in 2009.

Many works of art, including bridges, were made in the localities of Djoumane, Bolobo, Nguibi, Kuba, Nyam, Bolong, Marmara, Batha, N’Djamena, Ngueli, Lai, Chua and Loumia.

In terms of civil aviation, the airports of the major cities N’Djamena, Abeche, Moundou and Faya have been brought under ICAO standards. And some old airports have been rehabilitated.

Drinking water supplies in needy areas, and the electrification of secondary cities are also part of the achievements of this vast program.

In addition, the Department of Infrastructure has executed on behalf of the Ministries of Health, Education, Social Action, Territory Administration, Higher Education, Tourism, and in agreement with them. , a number of buildings never equaled to date: they are administrative buildings and housing, schools, colleges, high schools, social centers, health centers, district hospitals, regional hospitals, and especially the mother and child hospital and the modern N’Djamena hospital whose work is ongoing. The University of Toukra with a capacity of more than 20,000 students and two five-star hotels with more than 200 rooms each are part of this infrastructure that is currently being built.

In addition, to give the appearance of a modern city to our capital N’Djamena, considerable efforts have been made and which have materialized by the construction of 145 km of urban paved roads, and as many sanitation facilities. important in the rainy season.

These results were achieved through the adoption of a standard construction plan. This will have the effect of ensuring adequate maintenance of state investments.

In terms of institutional reforms, and in order to make the administration more efficient, a second generation Road Maintenance Fund (FER) was set up. It is envisaged the establishment in soon of an Agency of Road Maintenance (AGER). The objective is to sustain, or at least ensure some sustainability of road investments.

The efficiency of transport through the pursuit of the liberalization policy and the creation of the Civil Aviation Authority (ADAC) results from the same concern.

To this must be added the creation of the company Toumaï Air Tchad which is a national pride because of its role in serving the states of the sub-region as well as our cities.
