Newly constructed and first-ever bridge over the Moa river in Pujehun district


This is the newly constructed and first-ever bridge over the Moa River in Pujehun District. The bridge serves as a major link between Southern Sierra Leone and the Liberia border. Over decades ago, the only means of crossing this river was the old hand-pulled ferry or fragile canoes which posed a high risk to human lives and property. 
With a distance of 162m long, the Moa Bridge has an estimated lifespan of 100 years. It’s a two-lane bridge with solar lights installed to ensure the safety and security of drivers and commuters at all times. 
Moa Bridge is part of the “Bandajuma-Liberia Border Road and Bridges” project. 
This is the largest European Union-funded project in Sierra Leone and it costs €105 m. When completed, this project will improve Sierra Leone’s core road network and open the main gateway to Liberia, restoring a vital link between Mano river union countries and beyond
