The said tender involves the identification of other methods and dynamic modalities for the medium and long term development and construction of new roads and highway networks.

The project is one of the main focus of the 2035 Road Map which was developed in 2013 to setup the framework within which roads should be developed over the next twenty years. This plan was  designed to serve the entire national sector strategies, particularly in logistics, green tourism as well as the implications of some other sectoral plans which is fundamental to those relating to ports, railways and air strategies.

The national road plan entails the classification of the general business strategy development on the part of advanced road infrastructure by bearing in mind both the free and the approved road network.

According to the ministry, the study should specifically address the city axis Kenitra-Rabat-Casablanca- El Jadida which greatly need a network concentrated complex, economic growth, and urbanization. It must also cater to the requirements in peri-urban road infrastructure all over the major Moroccan cities.

On the financial area, the study should evaluate the essential funding, promising types of financial arrangements, and allocation of resources and support of different potential partners. It will also study its potential for the concession of the motorway network and preservation of expressways and major roads of national importance.

The chosen tenderer must also provide precautions for the transit function and protect infrastructures of urbanization, specifically expressways, sidings, and ring roads. On the monitoring side, the study must list the legal texts overseeing the road network which requires revision. In terms of governance, the aim is to develop the institutional and organizational aspects more importantly for monitoring and evaluation of the national plan.

The opening of the bid is scheduled at the end of May 2016.
