Project Description
The project consists of building a new 2-km long bridge between Al-Jorf in the mainland and Ajim at the extreme south-west of the island of Djerba. The island of Djerba with its 514, its 120 kilometers of beaches and more than 135 hotels, is a real tourist and economic center of Tunisia. It is connected to the continent thru two routes: • To the south, by a Roman road of 7 kilometers (between the locality of El Kantara and the peninsula of Zarzis) • To the south west, via ferries between Ajim and Jorf. In order to overcome the delays and the high costs of operating ferries as well as the long queues for travellers, the Tunisian Government plans to establish a fixed link between Djerba and the mainland thru a new bridge crossing the sea and connecting Djorf and Ajim (RR116 road). The length of the crossing is 2 km.
