Trans Sahara Road
 

Here's an article I just happened across on the BBC News site:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/2161077.stm

Apparently work has started, whatever that means. Having driven both the major routes from Nouadhibou to Nouakchott it's interesting that the cost is estimated at $70 mio, not including the drive-though McDonalds at the Guerguerat http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/ubb/smile.gif

While I understand the economic benefits this road may bring, I also a bit sad and feel it'll take something away from the crossing. Still, there's still the Libyan and Algerian routes and of course there's the Darien Gap!

Nick.
