Project Director, Julius Berger Nig. Ltd., Mr Frederick Weiser, revealed that work on the second Niger Bridge will be completed by Feb. 28, 2022.
Weiser has made this known when Gov. Willie Obiano of Anambra State inspected ongoing work at the project site in Ogbaru near Onitsha.
He said the contract for the construction of the Bridge was awarded over the years but was abandoned due to poor funding and failure to mobilise the contractor to site.
According to him, the Bridge is 1.6 kilometres long with 3.3 kilometres adjoining room from Delta and another seven kilometres at the Anambra end.
Weiser added that the biggest challenge they had before now was the rising water level of River Niger which has now receded.
