After two years and two lockdowns AA finally solved a 15-year-old problem for the Tabubil mining village in Papua New Guinea. A 110-metre long bridge designed and coordinated by Abseil Access was officially opened this month. The bridge links the village of Okma to Tabubil and allows for safe access between the two towns.
The bridge build was made necessary by the changing course of the Ok Tedi River, which made the old access bridge useless. In fact, the old bridge has been unusable for the last fifteen years, which has unfortunately led to fifteen drownings by people attempting the river crossing.
Abseil Access workers Ash Rogers and Bryce Hamilton, who led the bridge build said it was great to work with the locals and expect the success of the job will lead to further partnerships in Papua New Guinea.
