Cote D’Ivoire to Inaugurate Arab Contractors’ Jacqueville Bridge Next February

Cote D’Ivoire will be inaugurating next February its Jacque Ville Bridge, one of Egypt-based Arab Contractors’ biggest projects in Africa.

In this respect, Cote D’Ivoire President Alassane Ouattara has invited Egyptian Prime Minister Ibrahim Mahlab to attend the inauguration ceremony of Jacque Ville Bridge, which was implemented by Egyptian leading construction company Arab Contractors, at investment cost of EGP 250 million.

Jacque Ville Bridge, a 534-meter long and 10-meter wide structure spanning the Ebrie Lagoon, will link Jacqueville City and capital Abidjan on the mainland.

The project aims at the reduction of using ferries and boats between ‎the two sides of the lake, and participates in saving the time and ‎development of industrial and tourism activities in the coastal areas ‎and improvement of traffic from Jacque Ville to centre, north, east ‎and west of the country. It will also facilitate the trade of agricultural produce.

Presidents of Senegal, Togo, Guinea-Bissau, and Congo-Brazzaville have requested for AC’s presence to carry out more national projects in their countries as for being one of the leading construction firms in Africa, head of AC’s African sector Ashraf Rateb said on Sunday.

The AC official referred that Equatorial Guinea’s President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo agreed with Arab Contractors to immediately start carrying out a new housing city of 1000 fully-utilised units, with investment cost of US$150 million in Oyala.

AC had recently completed a major housing project, the Fish Town, in Malabo, the capital of Equatorial Guinea.

During his latest visit to Equatorial Guinea, Congo-Brazzaville’s President Denis Sassou Nguesso commended AC’s efforts and works in Fish Town, and called the Egyptian company to establish a representative office in Congo-Brazzaville to implement multiple infrastructure and road projects there.
