A major milestone in the construction of the second bridge over the Wouri River was completed in January 2017 in the economic capital of Cameroon because the company Sogea Satom, in charge of the construction of the second bridge over the Wouri, put in place the final connection, equivalent to joining the two halves of the bridge from the Déïdo and Bonabéri sides.
These works signify the end of structural works for the viaduct. The Minister of Public Works (Mintp) estimates that the physical completion rate is 84% in 97% of time allocated. Concerning the entry points to the bridge, the rate of completion of the works is 33%. The deck of the viaducts for the railroad structural works has been fully completed. Regarding the adjoining developments, the general physical completion rate is 43% with 41% on the Déïdo side and 46% on the Bonabéri side.
The design and implementation of the associated developments for the second bridge over the Wouri were established to optimise the core project, to make it more functional due to the development seen in the area of its location. This extension is meant to solve some important limitations mainly in the management of the traffic in the port area. The works include the development of a 2x3 lanes and sidewalks access road, from the Bonassama roundabout to the SCDP roundabout, including the roadway deck.
