Description

Design and construction of the National Route No. 77 has been identified as a key milestone for the economic and social development of the country.

The project, connecting the port of Djen Djen to the inland and the East-West motorway, will be a major economic catalyst and an important factor in restarting the whole economic regional sector.

The RN77 project is a challenging undertaking due to a number of specific factors and requirements:

  • extreme meteorological conditions;
  • deep excavation required to place piles and pile caps;

  • management of multiple simultaneous work fronts with an average of 5,000 employees on site.
