Link from Tataouine to the A1 motorway in the Governorates of Tataouine and Medenine

The A1 highway, 445 km long, connects the capital to Nabeul, Sousse, Sfax, Gabes, and Medenine governorates and ends at the Tunisian-Libyan border at Ras Jedir. The designed highway link complements this project by linking Tataouine city to the A1.
The study consists of developing 2x2 lanes of the national road N°19 between Tataouine and Sidi Mesbah town. Then, it proceeds with studying the construction of a new road in 2x2 lanes up to the interchange road of Medenine.
The project includes the studies of constructing two bridges over the watercourses of Oued Tataouine and Oued Ettaam and an overpass, the development of flat crossroads, the construction of hydraulic and drainage works, the public lighting of the road, and the installation of safety devices.
