Experts from Cameroon and Chad are presently examining the partial findings of feasibility studies carried out for the construction of a bridge over the River Logone. The bilateral pilot committee is currently in their second session that started on 12th October 2015 in Yaounde. Experts reportedly frowned at the fact that the institution identified to carry out the study has been lagging behind – the 18-month deadline for the presentation of the complete study has elapsed.
Officials from the two countries have decried the situation but are determined to identify a specific chronogram for the construction of the all-important project that has been initiated to enhance sub regional integration. The recent canoe accident that killed seven persons in the Logone River is being considered a glaring example of the need for the bridge to be constructed.
Upon completion, the bridge will serve in facilitating transportation of people and goods between Cameroon and Chad, thereby enhancing trade. It will link up the towns of Yagoua in Cameroon and Bongor in Chad.
