ATprojects has completed another footbridge, this time the Kurumba Iropeno Footbridge in the Enga Province over the Maramuni River. The last stage of the project took 7 days and during the time the cables were fixed to the large concrete supports on each size of the river. This was followed by the foot plates and hand rails. This footbridge will allow remote village communities to access health facilities and other Government services on the other side of the river, which until now has meant a very dangerous river crossing. ATprojects staff were told about a number of pregnant women being washed again by the river, but now that is a thing of the past. The pictures below show the the new footbridge and an example of a traditional bridge that was common in the area.
