Second Niger Bridge 95 Per Cent Completed
The second Niger bridge project has reached 95 per cent completion, and will be ready for use by the beginning of 2023.
The first phase of the project, which was the bridge proper, was substantially completed.
The final asphalt surfacing on the Asaba-bound carriageway lane was the only part left.
Acting controller of works in Anambra State and engineers’ representative on the project, Mr. Seyi Martins, said this while receiving members of the council for regulation of engineering in Nigeria at the site.
He said the asphalt wearing course had been fully laid on Onitsha bound carriageway lane and that every other thing about the bridge, including the streetlights, the handrails, and the parapet wall had been completed.
