Notes on the Geography of Sudan: A Southern Relic: Photo 4
On the same road: an abandoned crane.
The British built other roads in southern Sudan, too. Here's a note about the opening of one running from Juba south to Nimule, on the Uganda border: "An important recent event was the opening of a bridge over the Assua River, the final link in a new all-season road connecting Juba and Nimule, on the Nile, these being the terminal ports of the Sudan steamer services and Kenya and Uganda rail and steamboat systems. The road runs for two-thirds of its length through uninhabited country. It is 120 miles in length, with a surface 32 ft. wide." Source: The Crown Colonist, I:7, June 1932, p. 333.
