In what is the most ambitious single infrastructure project in the history of Sierra Leone, preparations kick off today to build a $2 billion bridge linking Freetown to the northwest of the country including the airport town of Lungi. It will be at no cost to the government. A tender process will be launched this morning for potential investors to express interest to construct the 8-kilometer-long bridge using a PPP business model to fund and later run it. A State House source says already five European and Asian companies have expressed interest and there could be more.
