The southeastern portion of Lesotho does not have an adequate road network. Communities living in this remote area of the 'Kingdom of the Sky' are cut off by rivers. When these rivers are in flood the only transport options are travelling by foot or by horse, and clinics can often only be reached by the 'flying doctor'. Recently the construction of five major bridges, which will form critical links in the area's road network, was initiated. Construction of these structures is close to completion. Aurecon is involved in the planning, design and construction supervision.
