Ramboll is proud to partner Bridges to Prosperity. In this first project 5 young bridge engineers will journey 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 is impassable for about 30 days a year. The new footbridge will keep 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 the project as it unfolds.
