Morocco’s National Motorway Company will begin constructing a new motorway in Agadir, a city along Morocco’s southern Atlantic coast.
Rabat – A new motorway will connect Agadir’s Al Massira Airport, 20 kilometers southeast of Agadir to the road leading to the Taghazout area, north of the city.
As part of Morocco’s growing infrastructure projects, the new motorway will facilitate traffic flow to the Agadir airport, its commercial port, and a number of tourist destinations, the Moroccan National Motorway Company (ADM) announced.
ADM has carried out several investment projects worth a total of MAD 600 million. The projects are mainly set to modernize Morocco’s infrastructure and electronic tolls.
In April, the company pledged MAD 3.4 billion in investment for several infrastructure projects, including widening the Casablanca-Berrechid road.
Some of the newest development projects in Agadir include the Pumped Power Transfer Station Project at the Abdelmoumen dam, 70 kilometers northeast of the city.
The project, launched in October, will construct an upstream reservoir on the Tamraght plateau at approximately 1,300 meters altitude.
The total cost of the project is MAD 3 billion. Construction is expected to last three years, and the total installed capacity will be 350 megawatts.
