HISTORY OF CITIES – HERITAGE

This is not the capital, Banjul, agglomeration at the end of his almost-island and whose growth has been negative since 1980, which takes the urbanization of the Gambia, Serrekunda but his “extension”, located 8 Km distance across the mouth of the Gambia River. Serrekunda conurbation spreads in densely populated areas in dozens of locations. This is the western part of the western province that is urbanizing and this process of coalescence and absorption on a geographical space inhabited narrow and dense. Thus, in 2030, three cities, Sanyang, Tanjeh and Brikama, Serrekunda should be absorbed to form a conurbation with more than 40% of the total population. These changes explain the leap forward rate primacy, already high, projected in 2030, and dropping demographic with other cities. (1)
