2nd Niger bridge will be completed in 2022- Fashola says

The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, says the Second Niger bridge which is currently being constructed, will be completed in 2022.

Fashola spoke at a forum organized by the News Agency of Nigeria to mark the sixth anniversary of the Buhari administration in Abuja, today June 20.

According to Fashola, the bridge, which will serve as a major link between the south-east and the south-west will be delivered between the second and third quarters of 2022.

“So, what you see currently is the final work. The sub-structure which entailed building cement structures underwater often costs a lot of money. We should finish the bridge next year between the second quarter and third quarter.”he said

The bridge is 1.6km long and furnished with other ancillary infrastructure, including a 10.3km highway and an interchange. The bridge spans from Asaba in Delta state to Ozubulu, Ogbaru, and other communities in Anambra state.
