Construction of the  R4.05 billion  Mtentu Bridge project in South Africa is starting this week South African National Roads Agency (Sanral) said on Monday.

The project in the Eastern Cape,  is part of Sanral’s N2 Wild Coast Road (N2WCR) programme and designed to have a main span of 260 metres at a maximum height of around 223 metres.

Completion of the Mtentu Bridge set to be the tallest in Africa is set for 2027.

“During the mobilisation period, Sanral engaged with stakeholders of both the Northern and Southern banks of the Mtentu Bridge. Local stakeholders have received news of the re-awarding of the contract with excitement and look forward to work resuming following delays caused by the project stoppage in October 2018,” Sanral Southern regional manager Mbulelo Peterson said.

Initially spearheaded by Aveng Strabag Joint Venture (ASJV), which comprised Aveng, a South African-based construction company, and Strabag, an Austrian construction company, the bridge construction was halted in October 2018 due to violent community protests.

And now China Communications Construction Company (CCCC) and MECSA Construction joint venture (CCCC MECSA JV) is the one working on the project.
