Duration of project: July 2008- July 2010
Project Value: $27,156,350
Through funding from USAID and World Bank, Civicon was contracted to rehabilitate 80km of existing road and fruther design and build another 80km. This is the first pre-designed murram road in Sudan and has been built to the Standard Technical Specification for Highway Work 2006 USA. The road has similar build constraints to the other UNOPS roads.
WORLD FOOD PROGRAMME - EMERGENCY ROAD REPAIRS, KAYA- RUMBEK, SUDAN
Project duration: Jan 2005- Dec 2005
We were contracted to build the very badly neglected stretch of road from Kaya through to Rumbek in Sudan to a high standard with a proper 7 metre wide carriageway with major drainage ditches to accommodate the large water run-off in the area. This project has a very short mobilisation time, compounded with the expected onset of the main rains in June July where the road repairs will be jeopardised by rain. The project consists of road works on a 5800 km section of road, undertaken from January until we will be forced to stop when the rains hit in earnest. This contract was run back to back with the second road repair contract, we had to double our equipment to cope with the larger contract. The road repair consisted of back filling massive quantities of fill material into the 1 to 2 metre deep potholes on the original road surface.
WORLD FOOD PROGRAMME- EMERGENCY ROAD REPAIRS, WAU- ABYEI, SUDAN
Project duration: Jan 2007- Nov 2008
Project value: $ 14,036,000
We were contracted to build a new gravel road from Wau to Abyei, this road officially joins the North to the South. This was historic moment when this road opened, as the two halves of this huge country have been effectively separated for over 20 years. This road was extremely difficult to build as the last source of murram was at km 58 and the road was 238 km long.
