Bridge Construction Booué

Contract: New Construction of a Bridge over the Ogooué River at Booué

Background and Project

The town of Booué, founded in 1883 by Pierre Savorgnan de Brazza, is situated in the middle region of the biggest river of Gabon, the Ogooué, on its northern bank. Due to lack of a bridge, the transport conditions are relatively underdeveloped. The only road connection links the town northwards to the National Road N4. According to the current planning, the National Road will cross Booué in the future. Therefore, this bridge plays an important role in the frame of the extension of the road network of Gabon and the economic development of Booué and its surroundings.

The project consists of the construction of a new bridge near Booué in central Gabon in the province of Ogooué-Ivindo. After construction of the bridge finally there will be a connection between the two banks of the river Ogooué. The total length of the bridge is amounting to 427 m.
