Within the last 3 years, 5 people have been injured with 3 fatalities due to unsafe access. The proposed bridge will span 60m, directly serving 140 people to provide safe access to resources.


Project Update:

April 2018

The team has been hard at work this year putting together all the components needed prior to sending a travel team to the community. Preliminary designs and project background was developed early this year and approved through review calls with the B2P parent organization's Technical Advisory Board (TAB). The bridge design has also been substantially completed and reviewed through TAB calls. We are currently working through the finishing touches things like material quantities, developing the in-country risk management plan, and preparing to train the travel team for the bridge build. Stay tuned!
