Finally, Second Niger Bridge Opens To Vehicular Movements

The Second Niger Bridge has finally been opened to vehicular movements.

The bridge was open at exactly 9:50am on Thursday after a little delay.

According to an unnamed government official, the delay was as a result of some little adjustments on the roads linking the bridge.

The first driver to pass through the bridge, Sunday Emem, expressed delight, noting that the new infrastructure will reduce hours spent on the road during trips. “I feel so happy, at least it will reduce the hold-up. We’ve stayed over one hour at the other bridge,” he said.

Obinna Eze, the second driver to pass through the bridge, urged the present administration to complete it before May 2023.

Recall that the minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola (SAN) had last Thursday disclosed that the Second Niger Bridge would be open to traffic from today till January 15, 2023 to ease traffic during Yuletide break.

The 1.6 kilometers long bridge links Anambra and Delta states.
