The Ministry of Public Works has laid the foundation stone for the construction of the 880 m Mangoky Bridge in Madagascar. 

The project encompasses the construction of a pre-stressed concrete bridge measuring 880 m in length and 7 m in width. This bridge will also feature two 1.35-m-wide sidewalks on either side. Additionally, approach roads spanning approximately 7 km will be established. The objective is to establish a connection between the Atsimo-Andrefana region in the south and the Menabe region in the west. Both regions house crucial agricultural and tourism resources. The Mangoky Bridge will play a role in diminishing travel durations and enhancing transportation connectivity between these 2 regions.

The project's overall expense is projected to be around MGA244.8 billion (US$54.3 million). The financing is sourced from loans provided by diverse donors, including the Saudi Fund for Development contributing US$20 million, the Arab Bank for Economic Development in Africa (BADEA) with US$20 million, the OPEC Fund for International Development with US$10 million, and the Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development with US$10 million. The remaining costs will be covered by the government of Madagascar.
