First section of Sfax/Gabes motorway inaugurated

The first section of the Sfax/Gabes motorway that stretches over 100km was inaugurated on Tuesday by Minister of Public Works, Housing and Spatial Planning Mohamed Salah Arfaoui.

This section is made up of stretches 1 and 2 that cover an area of 42km from Sidi Salah to El Mahres and stretches 5 and 6 linking Gabes to Skhira over 54Km.

Works to build the 150km-long motorway started more than three years ago. The 817 MTD project is funded by the Tunisian government and the European Investment Bank (EIB).

Arfaoui said the aim is to finish off the last section (Mahres/Skhira) by February 2018.

The highway includes five interchanges in southern and western Sfax, El Mahres, Skhira and El Metouia, a junction in northern Gabes, 75 bridges, 215 water works, 11 wadi bridges, 6 resting areas and 6 motorway tolls.
