Prior to this phase of construction, what Julius Berger had embarked upon is some access way works and preliminary pile testing. As we can see from these images from January 2015, Julius Berger have now commenced the process of embedding pile casing foundation works. Following the placement of the pile cases, the drill will then be cleaned, filled with the reinforcement rebar cage and the concrete will finally be inserted.
This project has quite a large scope and no such project has been completed in Nigeria in a very long time. As we mentioned in our previous blog entries, this project is more than just a bridge crossing. There are new access routes, as well as modern facilities that will accompany the structure.
