Juba-Nimule Road

On February 10, 2011, USAID launched the final stage of building the 192-kilometer Juba-Nimule Road, the start of tarmacking what will be southern Sudan's first highway—the only paved road outside major towns. The project is funded by USAID in close cooperation with the Government of Southern Sudan (GOSS) Ministry of Transport and Roads, and aims to strengthen development and bolster economic growth in southern Sudan.
