The proposed construction of the second Niger bridge in Onitsha which has taken off some months ago is believed to be nearing 40% completion according to the contractors in charge.
The current administration of president Muhammadu Buhari has earlier stated in the beginning of his tenure as the president elect of Nigeria that the second Niger bridge is part of his main targets before his term runs out of which the work has started off ever since then.
Significant work is believed to have been done in the 11.9km stretch of the ongoing construction which is believed that over 40% of the bridge has been completed. Julius Berger construction company being the contractor in charge will be through with the bridge in two years. The decking phase of the bridge will start by next week and is believed to last for another 32 weeks.
