Second Niger bridge soon to be commisioned as work enters new stage, see photos

Julius Berger Nigeria Plc has released fresh images on the progress recorded with the ongoing construction of the 2nd Niger Bridge.

In a report which accompanied the images, the company said as of January 10, 2020, the project had reached a stage of 30.12% completion.

The project is expected to be completed by February 2022. In June, the company launched a website to “allow Nigerians track the status” of the project.

The project had in the past experienced some delays due to the disagreements between the project handlers and the locals. The Locals had shut shut down works on the bridge insisting that they must get a fair share of the benefits the project had brought along with. They also petitioned the Julius Berger company to remove the head of operations overseeing the project and send in someone who could cooperate with them so as to avoid a repeat of the situations. It is not clear if the Head of Operations was actually replaced.

The Government of President Muhammadu Buhari has made it a top priority project, because he knows how economically beneficial it would be to the Nigerian people, especially the people of the southeast geopolitical zone. The importance of this bridge is so numerous, and once completed would help to boost the economy of the Southeast. The project will be ready for commissioning in the next 2 years
