Second Niger Bridge Completed, Says Fashola
Fashola stated this at a press briefing to present President Muhammadu Buhari’s scorecard in Abuja.
He stated that the only factor delaying the commissioning of the road is the construction of the link road which the recent surge of flooding has impeded.
“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,” the minister disclosed.
