Julius Berger’s serious work on Bodo Bonny Project brings progress to Bodo Communities

The road has transformed the local infrastructure network, enabling progress by providing neighboring communities much needed, reliable access to Bodo Town, improving social and economic connectivity and commercial opportunities.

Julius Berger Nigeria Plc’s completion of major milestones as part of the construction of the Bodo-Bonny Road is already delivering positive results for communities in the Niger Delta.

The company has successfully completed works on the 4.9 km Bodo Road leading to the Afa Creek Bridge, which has also been completed. Achievement of these two major scope components highlight Julius Berger’s commitment towards the timely commissioning of the first road to connect Bonny Island to the mainland. With the completion of the Bodo Road Julius Berger has delivered a world-class road infrastructure with necessary drainage systems and stone pitched shoulders to ensure a long-lasting and high-performance infrastructure. The road has transformed the local infrastructure network, enabling progress by providing neighboring communities much needed, reliable access to Bodo Town, improving social and economic connectivity and commercial opportunities.

In line with its planning, the company has commenced works on nine mini bridges as part of the ongoing construction of monumental project, with construction of major bridges in Okpobo and Nanabie in view. Despite the challenging terrain and environmental factors related to the project location, including low lying marshy land with tidal movements, Julius Berger continues to reliably deliver leading solutions, leveraging its technical capabilities and unmatched capacities.

Commenting on the progress achieved on the Bodo-Bonny Road project, the
Managing Director of Julius Berger Nigeria Plc, Engr. Dr. Lars Richter,
said;
“We understand the huge importance of the project, as the first
road ever to be build, connecting Bonny Island to the mainland, and the
significance this will have on the people of the Niger Delta and the
entire Nation. The challenging environment and soil condition in
Bodo-Bonny, requires tremendous technical expertise, logistics and
planning. We are working hard to deliver this road; we have the
capacity, and we have the commitment.”

Engr. Dr. Richter further
added that;
“The Bodo-Bonny Road Project will open up the tremendous
opportunities on Bonny Island, enabling progress and enhancing
socio-economic development in the region and beyond.  Bonny Island has a
rich history and is also very important to the Nation’s economy as it
plays host to the country’s largest oil and gas industries. We are
excited about the impact of the project and the overall socio-economic
development it will provide when completed. As a company that is
invested in Nigeria and in Nigerian communities, we are proud to be
enabling progress for communities in Bonny Island, the Niger Delta, and
the entire country”.
The Bodo-Bonny Road cuts across four local
Governments in Rivers State and the project further reinforces the value
that can be created by private and public sectors partnership.  This
pioneering project is a tripartite agreement between the Federal
Government, Nigeria LNG (NLNG), and Julius Berger Nigeria.
