The bridge is located about two kilometers from the town centre, while Amoud University is located a further two kilometers East of the bridge. Prof. Suleiman Ahmed Gulaid, President, Amoud University, was at hand to receive the president.
He was accompanied by Prof. Mohamed M. Jamaa "Derie", Vice President for public relations, community outreach and extra curricular activities together with Dr. Mohamed Muse Jibril, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Amoud University. Amoud University has had difficulties at times especially during the rainy season when Amoud Valley gets flooded and even transportation is halted until the valley runs dry. The bridge will therefore act as a major boost for the crucial activities involved in ensuring smooth running of the university. In the past the vehicles have the dry Amoud Valley as the gateway to the university, since its establishment.
