Togo: President Gnassingbé commissions two new bridges

(Togo First) - Two new bridges built across the Kara and Koumongou Rivers were commissioned yesterday. With respective lengths of 120m and 160m, these infrastructures connect the localities of Sokodé, Bassar, Katchamba and Sadori to the N°17 national road.

The bridges were financed by the Japanese government (XOF16 billion) and took 30 months to be built. They were officially inaugurated by President Faure Gnassingbé, in the presence of various officials, including the minister of infrastructures, Zouréatou Kassa Traoré.

Traoré on this occasion said the infrastructures will improve the lives of surrounding populations. According to her, "this is an inclusive project with strong economic potentialities since the concerned area is a major agricultural production zone."

Moreover, she adds, "the N°17 national road, just like the N°1 national road, are part of the corridor connecting the autonomous port of Lomé to neighboring landlocked countries."
