Tiznit-Dakhla highway: The project of the era to transform Morocco’s south

At the heart of Morocco is an ambitious project that promises to transform the infrastructure and economy of the south: The Tiznit-Dakhla motorway. Spanning 1,055 kilometres, this massive project promises to improve connectivity between southern cities and regions, reduce travel times, improve road safety, and encourage investment and economic and social development.

Route and stages: The road consists of two main sections, the first connecting Tiznit to Guelmim for 114 kilometres, and the second stretching from Guelmim to Laayoune for 406 kilometres. The project also includes the widening of National Road 1 between Laayoune and Dakhla, with the construction of 13 technical facilities and the bending of three technical facilities, enhancing infrastructure and facilitating traffic flow.

Objectives: The project aims to improve connectivity between southern cities and regions, reduce travelling time and improve road safety. It also seeks to encourage investments and develop economic and social development in the region, contributing to improving the quality of life for the population.

Progress: As of 2022, the overall progress of the works is 72%, and the works are being carried out in different phases, including the motorway, technical installations and national road preparation. The project is being executed with expertise and precision to ensure the highest standards of quality and safety.

Impact: The project is expected to have a significant positive impact on the economy and society in the region, as it will contribute to the development of infrastructure and improve the quality of life for the population. It will also enhance connectivity between the southern regions and the rest of the Kingdom, opening up new horizons for trade and tourism.

The project, which is part of the new development model for the southern provinces, reflects the Kingdom’s commitment to sustainable and inclusive development. It is not just an infrastructure project, but a vision for a more prosperous future for southern Morocco.
