Crossing the Old Bridge

We only have two bridges in Bamako and this is the smaller, older one. During rush hour, it becomes one way (into town in the mornings and out in the evenings) which helps ease congestion to some extent. However, the Chinese are building a third bridge, almost 2km long, downstream and it should be finished in the next few months. Here are some sites showing the third bridge in various stages of construction: making the pillars, the finished pillars, putting on the horizontals.
