Ikoyi Bridge

Lekki-Ikoyi Bridge

Bilfinger Berger Nigeria GmbH develops customized designs for bridges in Nigeria such as the Lekki-lkoyi Bridge in Lagos, shown here. We support our operating partner with comprehensive logistics services during the construction period.

Not only in Lagos, but also in all other construction projects throughout Nigeria, we provide Julius Berger Nigeria with materials and equipment that are difficult or impossible to procure inside the country. We thus provide logistical and planning support for the construction of the Lekki-lkoyi Bridge in Lagos.

The bridge in Lagos, one of the largest cities in the world, will connect two heavily congested districts, thereby relieving city traffic. The plans for Nigeria’s first cable-stayed bridge were drawn up by design specialists from Bilfinger Berger Nigeria GmbH.

The structure comprises a 700-meter full-span approach bridge. Connected to this is a segmental bridge of more than 600 meters in length, at the center of which is a 91-meter high pylon.
