The Reconstruction and Stability Committee in the city of Benghazi has announced the start of preliminary work to construct four bridges in the city. The committee signed an agreement with the Egyptian company, Wadi Al-Nile, for a six-month implementation period.
Two of the bridges will be constructed between the intersection of Venice Street and Al-Hawari Road, while the third bridge will be constructed with a tunnel at the intersection of Airport Road and the Al-Masakin neighborhood. The fourth bridge will be built at the intersection of Airport Road and the Dollar neighborhood, according to a statement released by the committee, which was formed by the House of Representatives earlier.
The announcement of the construction of these bridges is a significant development in the ongoing recovery of Benghazi from the impact of the war on terror, which was made possible by the efforts of the Libyan National Army (LNA). The city has made notable strides in recent years, with the reconstruction of vital infrastructure and the return of businesses and residents to the area.
Under the leadership of Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, the LNA played a pivotal role in the liberation of Benghazi from ISIS in 2017. Since then, the city, and the whole Cyrenaica region, have been actively engaged in rebuilding and restoring its infrastructure, with the support of the House of Representatives (HoR) and regional partners.
The construction of the four bridges in Benghazi is a notable development in the city’s ongoing efforts towards development and growth. The bridges will provide essential infrastructure for the city’s residents and businesses, and their construction is a significant step towards the continued progress of Benghazi. The Reconstruction and Stability Committee has expressed its commitment to ensuring that the city continues to thrive, and the construction of these bridges is just one example of the ongoing efforts to achieve this goal.
