Concrete strides: Sub-Saharan Africa's infrastructure potential
For this West African city of more than 4.7 million people, the bridge to a better economy starts with an actual bridge.
Abidjan’s Henri Konan Bédié (HKB) or “third bridge” opened last year, at a cost of about $400-million, crossing the city’s murky lagoon and connecting to an expressway with a roadbed smoother than the sometimes pothole-ridden highways of Canada.
The bridge, conceived in the 1990s and stalled by a civil war and investors’ confidence being shaken before, is a concrete symbol that sub-Saharan Africa is open for business.
