The exchanger bridge in Sidi Maarouf which is a neighborhood of Casablanca and will serve to access the city is now up for construction. After a long wait, the project is now back on track after a Moroccan construction company was chosen to execute the project.
The bridge is likely to reduce ultimately the congestion in the crossroads which is considered one of the black points of the metropolis because of the incessant flow of vehicles passing through this area, in addition to the tramway that generate even more traffic. It will serve several locations, including the Mohammed V Airport, business district of Sidi Maarouf, National Highway 11, California, Ain Chock, etc.
In the form of cable-stayed bridge measuring 225 meters long, it will facilitate and accommodate direct traffic flows between Casablanca, Mohammed V Airport (level 1), and another two hoppers for direct flows between Sidi Maarouf and the National Road number 11 towards Casablanca and two roundabouts located north and south of National Highway 11..
The project is expected to be delivered over two and will require a budget of DH315 million which will be funded by the Ministry of Infrastructure, Transport and Logistics, the urban district of Casablanca and Branch of Local Authorities (DGCL). The construction works comprising the links, roundabouts and earthworks will kick off within two months upon approval of the contract.
