Things are moving forward following the visit of the two heads of State of Senegal and Gambia. Macky Sall et Adama Barrow will start their first step of cooperation.
The Farafenni’s bridge construction is to start on Wednesday reveals the Senegalese’s daily, L’As Quotidien. At last, the project, several times announced under Jammeh, will be achieved in 30 months. However, it is clear that the closure of the bridge for construction purposes will affect the traffic and cause a major detour via Tambacounda, the by-pass of the Gambia, which may take a long time for motorists.
However, with the bypass, travelers fear an unreasonable rise in transport prices. The bridge, once realized, will make the round trip between Dakar and Ziguinchor in 24 hours, delight travelers.
