Arcelormittal Complains Damaged Bridge Linking Nimba And Bong

ArcelorMittal Liberia notifies the public that a section of the Duo rail bridge was severely damaged while equipment for the Phase II Project was being transported from Buchanan to Tokadeh.

The equipment on a flatcar behind the locomotive appears to have shifted and caught on the bridge truss as the train was moving north Saturday afternoon.

The Duo bridge spans the St. John River separating Nimba and Bong counties. Circumstances surrounding the incident are currently under investigation.

There were no injuries or casualties to the train crew or members of the public. The adjoining vehicle and pedestrian bridge is closed for now, for public safety reasons.

The Ministry of Public Works and authorities of Bong, Nimba, and Grand Bassa Counties have been notified, as engineers, safety and security officers from ArcelorMittal Liberia have been deployed to the scene to assess necessary repairs.

ArcelorMittal is the world’s leading steel and mining company, with a presence in 60 countries and primary steelmaking facilities in 17 countries.

In 2020, ArcelorMittal had revenues of $53.3 billion and crude steel production of 71.5 million metric tonnes, while iron ore production reached 58.0 million metric tonnes.
