R & Sons build and launch new bridge in Madang
R & Sons Constructions in a historic moment successfully built and delivered the 13 bays Compact 200 Nubia Bailey Bridge in Bogia District of Madang Province in May this year.
From a humble beginning, R & Sons Constructions Limited, a 100% nationally owned and operated company with over 20 years’ experience in civil road works construction and maintenance have made history to build and deliver this bridge.
Managing Director Mr. Thomas Pisimi at the launch said although there were many logistical challenges his team overcame the hurdles and managed to get the bridge completed ahead of schedule.
He said his team had reason to be proud of their achievement delivering the bridge considering the challenges they had to endure to get a vital infrastructure in place for the benefit of the wider community in the province.
Mr. Pisimi thanked his Project Management team and said he was hopeful that the bridge will restore and boost the social and economic activities for the people in the area again.
The original bridge collapsed in 2017 cutting off communities around Yawar and access to Bogia and Madang was only possible via a wet crossing at the river mouth during low tide.
The bridge supplied by Markham Culverts was imported from the United Kingdom and was delivered through the Papua New Guinea-Australia Partnership with the key focus on connecting communities through safer more reliable road infrastructure maintenance and network along the Coastal Highway.
Bogia MP, Robert Naguri, acknowledged Australia’s support stating that the bridge provided direct access to health centers nearby.
He said: "Connecting the Yawar coastal communities and inland communities along the Ramu River through a safer, more reliable crossing is crucial for essential goods and services to reach every community member.”

Recently a contract was awarded to R&Sons Constructions to carry out minor and major road repair works along sections of the Okuk Highway starting from Morobe province.
Project Manager for R&Sons, Mr. Marcus Wamugl said regular contracts awarded to small local contractors such as R&Sons enabled small businesses to grow and participate in essential road projects and also gave confidence for small companies to bid for bigger projects.
