Acrow supplies 61 bridges to Panama’s Ministry of Public Works for rural infrastructure development
April 8, 2019—Acrow Bridge, a leading international bridge engineering and supply company, is pleased to announce that it provided Panama’s Ministry of Public Works with 61 modular steel bridges in 2018, along with training on assembly and installation of the structures to enable local engineers, technicians, and contractors to implement this priority infrastructure project. Acrow is pleased to further report that approximately half of the bridges have already been installed. While transportation infrastructure in the urban areas of the country is robustly developed, in the rural areas of Panama, road density is among the lowest in Central America, according to the World Economic Forum. In order to address this deficit and exploit the potential economic gains of expanded trade connectivity, Panama’s current Government Strategic Plan includes investments to construct and expand highway and rural road infrastructure. The bridges supplied by Acrow will be used in rural regions of the country in the form of new crossings as well as to replace deficient or decommissioned structures.
