The funding objective is to support BAM International B.V. in preparing and performing the studies/surveys and ESIA needed, prior to financial close, to move forward to the implementation phase of the bridge component of the Project. The proposed Project will consist of two main components: I. Design and construction of Adowso Bridge, the bridge is expected to have a length of ca. 2.5 km (subject to topographical surveys) and shall connect Adowso to Ekyiamentfrom in the Eastern Region of Ghana. The works consists of the turnkey design, supply and construction of a new 2 lane bridge and walkways on both sides. II. Design and construction/upgrading of approx. 128 km of approach roads, connecting the National road N6 with the Adowso bridge. The approach road is from Adowso to Bunso, through Kwahu, Maiso and Begoro. The design and construction of the Adowso Bridge will be executed by BAM International and its consortium partner Janson Bridging International. The UK branch of the Brazilian contractor Contracta will upgrade the approach roads within the Afram Plains
The project will focus on enabling infrastructure facilities to better connect the agricultural Afram plains to the local and regional markets and to contribute to the Ghana's national effort to increase food security. Additionally, it will provide proper access to social services (health, education) for the rural population in the catchment area. By funding this project, we are also pro-actively supporting Dutch interest in Ghana, as BAM and its partner JBI have been appointed by the Government of Ghana as the contractor for the design and construction of the Adowso Bridge.
