Written by on October 16, 2020

The Kazungula Bridge is a 923 meter long bilateral initiative by Botswana and Zambia at the confluence of the Zambezi and Chobe rivers.

The bridge is expected to ease trade by significantly reducing time in transit across the borders and expand access through most land-linked SADC member states.

Officially launched in 2014, the $259.3 million project is co-financed by the governments of Botswana and Zambia.

Masisi further said the Mohembo bridge, which is a cable-stayed bridge, designed to enhance the look of the Okavango Delta, is also nearing complection. Government has budgeted more than 1 billion pula for construction of this bridge.
