New Highway Planned for Haiti

The Haiti plan involves the creation of Highway. These new highways in Haiti will be built for integrating and developing areas outlying Port-au-Prince and other key cities in Haiti by linking them with a national transportation infrastructure and social support.


The plan will require construction of 600 km of roads of Highway. The 18-month budget sets aside an initial $30 million for the road initiative, with "firm commitment to $600 million." Another $150 million is included for repairs and maintenance of these highways, with an additional $50 million in budgetary support.

"We need to connect these regions using not only a network of roads but also adequate port and airport facilities and a range of public services that are suited to economic and social development needs, particularly in terms of education and access to quality health-care services," the report states.
