New Construction of a Bridge over the Feeder of the Nkomi Laguna

Background and Project

Port Gentil, the second largest city, is one of the most important ports and centres of the petroleum industry of the country. Nevertheless, at present there is no developed road link to the inland. That's why the city can be reached or supplied only by air or sea so far. The construction of the bridge over the feeder of the Nkomi Laguna, in the frame of the new construction of the road is a first step to connect Port Gentil to the hinterland. Thus transport and exchange of goods will be facilitated in the future or even just made possible, The living conditions of the inhabitants of the province Ogooué-Maritime and the population of Port Gentil will be ameliorated. Overall, the bridge and the road will play a crucial role in the economic and tourist development in Gabon.

The total length of the bridge to be built in the frame of the construction of the road from Port Gentil to Omboué, in Gabon's West, is amounting to 4,577 kms.
