Ramboll is proud to partner Bridges to Prosperity. In our first project with B2P, 5 young bridge engineers journeyed out to remote eastern Uganda, alongside a team from IABSE. Their mission: to create a footbridge across the Ngame river in 2 weeks. Regular flooding means that the existing ford was impassable for about 30 days a year. The footbridge we created keeps the communities of LHS Mamawukulu, Bumbiman RHS Kishambua and Malandu connected year round, improving the lives of residents immeasurably.
This blog tells the story of this inaugural project as it unfolded. You can find more details on the project, the design and the outcome on the Ramboll website.
