肯尼亚西部中国公司承建的耗资1200万美元的斯格利大桥在即将竣工时突然垮塌,至少造成27人受伤。由中铁国际中海外东非公司、中铁十局建筑公司承建的SIGIRI桥项目。
根据《中国中铁》报2017年6月7日报道称:“在肯尼亚恩佐河畔,中铁十局肯尼亚SIGIRI桥项目部正掀起了“大干60天(5月15日至7月14日),确保竣工节点”的施工高潮,确保SIGIRI桥项目8月份顺利完成,向肯尼亚总统大选献礼。
据了解,SIGIRI桥项目包括一座三跨(25+50+25)米共100米的桥梁和两侧共3公里的引道,2015年开始建设。
    两个星期前,肯肯尼亚总统乌胡鲁·肯雅塔曾在该大桥进行连任竞选演说,把这座大桥作为他执政的一大政绩。肯尼亚总统还称,肯尼亚获得了中国资助的38亿美元的铁路项目,该铁路连接肯尼亚首都内罗毕到港口城市蒙巴萨。

    2017年6月14日,肯尼亚总统乌胡鲁·肯雅塔和副总统威廉·鲁托一行搭乘专机抵达肯尼亚西部Busia区,在SIGIRI地区议员和当地官员代表的陪同下,视察了由中铁国际中海外东非公司、中铁十局建筑公司承建的SIGIRI桥项目。

  SIGIRI桥项目经理向肯雅塔总统介绍了项目各项工程进展情况。肯雅塔总统对工程进度表示满意,并发表了讲话。他指出,SIGIRI桥项目是一项民心工程,他相信中铁国际中海外东非公司一定会帮助他实现对肯尼亚人民许下的诺言,向民众移交高品质的工程。

 

  中铁国际中海外东非公司表示,为了几代中海外人对肯尼亚的情感,为了帮助小镇民众实现多年夙愿,为了不枉总统的殷殷期盼,项目团队合力攻艰,“两岸通航”指日可待。

 

 


(CNN)It was an embarrassing collapse for Kenya's ruling party.
Just two weeks after an "inspection" by President Uhuru Kenyatta, a $12 million Chinese-built Sigiri bridge in Western Kenya collapsed before it was completed.
Built by the Chinese Overseas Construction and Engineering Company in Busia County, the bridge connects a region that has historically lacked government investment and development. Around a dozen people died on the river after a boat capsized while attempting to cross in 2014.
President Kenyatta's Jubileee Coalition has made infrastructure development a key pillar of its reelection strategy ahead of the coming presidential election.
On June 14, he made a campaign stop at the Sigiri bridge construction site and spoke to crowds gathered along the river.
 
He promised the bridge would bring development that the region had been denied for decades.
"There is a big difference between those who will sell to you propaganda and people who will sell to you real agenda for change," President Uhuru Kenyatta said in a statement posted on the Presidency website.
