  • Description

    THE IVORY COAST'S NEW BRIDGE - LINKING THE CAPITAL, ABIDJAN, WITH NEIGHBOURING TREICHVILLE - IS NOW OPEN TO TRAFFIC.

    THE BRIDGE, WHICH COST MORE THAN GBP4,500,000, WAS OFFICIALLY OPENED LAST SATURDAY BY THE IVORY COAST MINISTER OF STATE, AUGUSTE DENISE.

    IT IS MORE THAN 1,900 FEET (ABOUT 592 METRES) LONG AND 81 FEET (25 METRES) BROAD. ALL THE MONEY FOR CONSTRUCTION WAS PROVIDED BY THE IVORY COAST GOVERNMENT.

    THE BRIDGE WILL BRING MUCH NEEDED RELIEF TO TRAFFIC BETWEEN ABIDJAN AND TREICHVILLE, A RESIDENTIAL TOWN. IT IS THE SECOND CROSSING OVER THE LAGOON SEPARATING THE TWO TOWNS, AND CARRIES TWO MOTORWAY LANES, PLUS CYCLE LANES AND FOOTPATHS.
