By 1983, the building of the only bridge over the Zaire River at Matadi was completed with assistance provided by the Japanese government. Later projects included building hundreds of concrete bridges to replace 200 of Zaire's 300 small ferries and log crossings. Ferries on larger rivers were to be refurbished." [F. Scott Bobb, 1999: Historical Dictionary of Democratic Republic of Congo, The Scarecrow Press, Inc.].
