Milestone

More than 40 professional and student volunteers mainly from Nanjing University, Southeast University and Hefei University of Technology succcesfully built a 32 meters long footbridge in Jun.
Due to weather condition, pier construction and key construction work of the bridge were delayed until late Jan. The original schedule of volunteer construction trip had to be postponed to Jun.
The project team finalized the design. Pier construction and key construction work of the bridge will be completed by local contractor. Volunteer construction trip will be scheduled in Dec for the installation work of planks and handrails on top.
As the construction cost for the original design is too high, the project team is now revising the design to scale down the cost.
The construction drawing has been confirmed and the project team is now quoting the price for construction.
Project team confirmed the bridge design in Oct. Please click here to see the design proposal. (Chinese version only).
