It is a 1.2 km structure, to be built with reinforced concrete boxes in the dry at the site of a future navigation channel. Construction commenced seven years ago but was stopped. About 60% of these boxes are already built, the remaining ones and all the joints have to be done. The existing boxes have to be rehabilitated.
