Gabon is among the countries with the best infrastructure in the subregion.

 

The roads

Gabon is a road network of 1572 km of paved roads including 672 km of roads built between 2009 and 2016 this reflects the Government's desire to open up certain remote areas and improve the connection by land with neighboring countries (Cameroon, Congo and Equatorial Guinea) thus opening the country a little more to the rest of the world.

The train

The Transgabonais, which links the country from east to west by rail, representing a network of 710 km, will see the start of optimization work partly financed by the State through the French Development Agency (AFD) and SETRAG (Société d'exploitation du Transgabonais). In the long term, the line optimization will allow 16 train days of traffic, thus doubling the current capacity.

The ports

Gabon now has 2 deep water ports, the 2 located in the commune of Owendo.
The new Port of Owendo: inaugurated in 2017, 170 m long quay

Airports

Gabon has three international airports, Libreville, Port-Gentil recently renovated to international standards and Franceville, as well as sixty local airfields. Arriving at Libreville airport (ADL), you can carry out your visa formalities on the spot with entry and exit permit, as well as police and customs formalities, but also hotel reservations.

The State and the main water and energy operator have invested heavily in recent years in water and electricity capacity to improve production

The new water production plant in Ntoum, whose role is to better supply Libreville, was inaugurated in January 2016.

Among the various projects are the reinforcement of existing electricity transmission networks and the first phase of the interconnection of the national electricity network, which will eventually enable us to sell our energy to neighboring countries.

Access to electricity in rural areas has also been significantly improved with the provision of micro hydroelectric power stations and generators in several communes in the interior of the country.

In Gabon, 60% of the population has direct access to broadband internet thanks to the construction of a national terrestrial optical fiber network.

It is because the State is working to make Gabon a regional reference pole in the field of ICT that work in the digital field is succeeding. After the SAT3 and the ACE cable, today it is with the Central African Backbone that Gabon has embarked on a vast program of world-class infrastructure construction.

Even today, this major infrastructure project remains a priority driven by the ambition of the President of the Republic and supported by the PSGE with the aim of: opening Gabon definitively, developing transport infrastructure, building world-class digital infrastructures.
