The Federal Government through the Minister for Works and Housing Babatunde Fashola SAN has confirmed that completion of the 2nd Niger Bridge will soon be opened for motorists to use
Fashola stated this at a press briefing to present President Muhammadu Buhari’s scorecard in Abuja on Wednesday.
Fashola said, “I can confirm that the second Niger bridge itself is finished. People can walk through the bridge now unimpeded. What remains is the four-kilometer link road on the Asaba side.
“Right now, our dredger is in place, we have to rebuild the road by reclaiming sand, the recent surge of flood has slowed us down. On the Onitsha side, there is a 7kilometer road that links the bridge and the Onitsha-Owerri interchange.”
