Bouygues Travaux Publics has designed and built a new 6.7-kilometre highway linking the north and south of Abidjan. Among other structures, the highway includes an interchange and a 6-lane, 1.5-kilometre bridge, named the Henri Konan Bédié Bridge in tribute to the former Ivorian president. The new infrastructure results in a considerable improvement to traffic for the 100,000 vehicles that travel between the north and south of the city every day, and facilitates the transportation of freight to the port.
