The Congo (Brazzaville) National Highway 1 project carried by Winsky Logistics is a key project for China's assistance in building Africa. Congo National Highway 1 starts from the economic center of Black Point in the west and ends in the capital Brazzaville in the east, with a total length of 536 kilometers. It was constructed by China State Construction Corporation with a total contract amount of 2.89 billion US dollars. It is the largest and most important cooperation project between the two countries in the 50 years since the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Congo. The first phase of the project, from Black Point to Doliji, has a total length of 160 kilometers. Construction officially began in May 2008 and was officially opened to traffic in December 2011. The second phase of the project, from Doliji to Brachai, has a total length of 376 kilometers and was officially opened to traffic on March 1, 2016. The entire road passes through deserts, grasslands, swamps, areas controlled by former anti government forces, etc., and is sparsely populated along the route, resulting in the prevalence of diseases. French companies had planned roads that crossed the local virgin forests for decades, but ultimately had to give up due to the difficulties. Due to the disregard for the danger of insects, snakes, and flooding, the Chinese enterprises and builders who built the National Highway 1 in the Republic of Congo are known locally as the "mountain carvers".
After eight years of unremitting efforts by all builders, the Congo (Brazzaville) National Highway 1, carried by Winsky Logistics, was finally successfully opened to traffic, reducing the distance from Cape Black to Brazzaville from one week to 8 hours, and increasing the traffic volume from 164 vehicles per day to over 4000 vehicles per day. The construction and opening of Highway 1 has stimulated the rapid development of the freight and passenger transportation industry in Congo (Brazzaville), with more and more residential and factory buildings appearing along the route, greatly promoting the development of the local economy. The completion of this project will also become a typical demonstration project for China Africa friendship and cooperation.
The roads carried by Winsky Logistics connect multiple cities such as Doliji, Minduli, Kinkara, and Brazzaville, effectively solving the external transportation problems in Pul Province. The Black Point to Yie Highway has a decisive impact on the economic development of Congo, and its completion will facilitate the circulation of people and materials between northern cities and the south. Highway 1 will pass through the Brazzaville Maluku Industrial and Commercial Park to reach the village of Iye, which intersects with Highway 2. The Maluku region will also construct a Congo River railway and highway dual purpose bridge connecting Brazzaville and Kinshasa.
