Senegal - Dakar Bus Rapid Transit Pilot Project (English)

The development objective of Dakar Bus Rapid Transit Pilot (BRT) Project for Senegal is to enhance urban mobility between Dakar and Guédiawaye through the development of a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor. This project has four components. 1) The first component, BRT Infrastructure, Fleet, and Systems, aims to finance goods, works, and services for detailed design, construction, and supervision of the BRT core infrastructure including the road infrastructure and its drainage system, landscaping, depot, terminals, stations, intersections, corridor traffic management systems, pedestrian crosswalks, sidewalks, and some bike lanes along the corridor. 2) The second component, Public transport network restructuring and road works, aims to finance goods, works, and services for road works along feeder routes, road works on vicinal roads to support diverted traffic due to suppressing of left turn movement as well as reduction of the ROW, and provision of urban furniture for public transport along feeder routes. 3) The third component, Capacity building and project management, aims to finance provision of technical assistance, operational costs, and capacity building in project implementation as well as in sustainable monitoring and supervising of BRT operations (including a mirror system), fiduciary and safeguard activities, monitoring and evaluation (M and E), and financial audits. 4) The fourth component, Road safety, aims to finance provision of road safety technical assistances, education and sensitization campaigns of local communities to the BRT operations, and training and equipment.
