FG to commission Second Niger Bridge by December 2022

The Acting Federal Controller of Works, Anambra State, Seyi Martins, has promised that the Second Niger Bridge located in Onitsha will be opened for use in December 2022.

This is to ease movement into the South East.

However, the members of the Council for Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN) paid an inspection visit to the site during the weekend.

The inspection visit led Seyi Martins to give his assurance on the ongoing project in Onitsha, Anambra State.

On his assurance, he clarified that the project is 95% ready.

The bridge is about 1.7 kilometres parallel to the Head Bridge with dual carriageway of three lanes on both sides. With this, the Second Niger Bridge has a total length of 11.9 kilometres.

Mr Seyi Martins revealed that the only part left for completion is the asphalt surfacing on the Asaba-bound carriageway lane.

Presidency to run documentary on the project

The Presidency will have a 25-minute documentary show on air on the Second Niger Bridge.

The Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, released a statement yesterday.

In the statement, Mr Adesina explained the documentary titled, “The Legacy: Second Bridge” will be on air today and tomorrow on two local television stations.

The documentary will be on Channels TV and the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA).

According to the statement, the moment of commissioning the project is almost here. This is after over four decades of promises from different administrations in the past.
