The Imo River bridge is located on Port Harcourt, Eket Road in Akwa-Ibom State, in southern Nigeria, is 840m long and 11m wide.
Built as part of the Dualization of the Port Harcourt, the bridge crosses the Imo River almost perpendicular to the flow of water and is parallel to an existing crossing, built during the 80’s.
The superstructure is made of 9 typical 80m long main-spans and two 60m long end spans. The superstructure was built using the balanced cantilever method, with a form traveller.
The substructure is made of reinforced concrete, double-wall piers, founded on piles.
The foundations were constructed using a barge-carried pile drilling machine.
