Presidents Macky Sall and Adama Barrow on their way to the inauguration grounds

The Presidents of The Gambia and Senegal, Adama Barrow and Macky Sall, on Monday officially inaugurated the SeneGambia Bridge.

The 942m long bridge, which was co-financed by the African Development Bank (AfDB), Gambia and Senegal is part of the Trans-Gambian road corridor.

In a statement released by the State House of The Gambia, it stated the bridge is a “vital economic and strategic link connecting north and south banks of the River Gambia as well as The Gambia, Senegal and other countries in the sub-region.”

President Barrow received President Sall at Farafenni in the North Bank Region where they both headed to the inauguration grounds.
