Lesotho: New Roadways and Bridges Bring Communities Together

October 7, 2016

The new South-Eastern Corridor provides both easier and faster connections for communities in and around the Qacha’s Neck region of Lesotho to the country’s capital, Maseru, while tourists now have easy access to major tourism spots in this Region. The new road is the result of a transport project led by the Government of Lesotho with funding and technical support for the new bridges over the Senqu and Senqunyane Rivers provided by the International Development Association, the World Bank’s fund for the world’s poorest countries.
