Sierra Leone has witnessed tremendous growth and development due to the successful public-private partnership between the government of Sierra Leone and China Railway Seventh Group (CRSG) in road infrastructure. The Wellington-Masiaka Toll Road, financed, constructed, operated, and maintained by CRSG, has not only transformed transportation in the region but has also become a shining example of how such partnerships can bring about significant benefits to a country.

The Wellington-Masiaka Toll Road has attracted attention from various countries as a model for successful implementation of public-private partnerships in infrastructure projects. Investors from countries such as Liberia, Ghana, Senegal, and Guinea have visited Sierra Leone to study and learn from the success of this project. The road has become a platform for Sierra Leone to showcase its national development level and attract investment from diverse sectors.

One of the key benefits of the Wellington-Masiaka road is population migration and relocation. The improved access provided by the highway has helped decongest the capital city of Freetown, offering residents along the road corridor easier and faster travel options. The economic and service delivery aspects have also seen remarkable improvements, with enhanced access to medical facilities, recreational opportunities, and social facilities benefiting both residents along the road corridor and those traveling from the provinces to Freetown.
