11 Jul Construction of the bridge over the Chagres River, Panama, is set to end in September.
The works awarded by the Panama Canal Authority to the Copisa-COCIGE consortium are 90% completed, which means that they are expected to be finalised by September.
This structure has two lanes measuring 278 metres in length, piles, abutments and reinforced concrete beams.
The work includes the rigid concrete paved accesses on either end which connect to the existing roads.
The bridge is being built to ensure greater traffic safety and it will have two lanes and a pavement. It will be of benefit to the community of Gamboa and also the growth of ecotourism.
