The Ndumoto 3 Bridge
The Ndumoto 3 Bridge spans 215 meters across the Ndumoto seasonal river. The river causes extensive flooding in the area which necessitated a bridge of such length. The bridge has adopted a 2 T shaped abutment on both ends.
Construction of the Ndumoto 3 railway bridge across Ndumoto rivers is at an advanced stage. Currently the contractor, CRBC Section 7 is undertaking joining works between the each pair of T beams on the bridge. The pair of beams have to be joined by welding of steel cables.
The bridge, which spans 215 metres across the seasonal river, is expected to solve the perennial flooding which takes place at that point. The bridge is located at chainage DK341+350.00.
The surface of the bridge has rail tracks already laid although an extra pair is expected to be laid before final completion. Normally bridges have 2 pairs of tracks on them.
