 While these constructions go on, other minor structures like bridges and gutters will be constructed along the road.

“The engineering structures also include the construction of two bridges. Our teams have just completed the installation of 23-meter long 50-ton prefabricated girders. They will support the bridge that will cross the Akié Mvengue River. Two truck cranes (80T and 65T) were needed for this operation,” the company hinted.
