An Engineer at the Federal Ministry of Works, Mr Edward Bosah, says work on the Second Niger Bridge has reached its third phase, contrary to speculation that work on the project had stopped.
He made the revelation during the inspection tour of the construction site by the Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, at the main yard and camp site of Julius Berger, the construction firm handling the project.
The Site Engineer, Mr. Stefan Ueseman, also hosted the Governor in the situation room and took him through a presentation of the work being done.
Governor Willie Obiano said that he was pleased with the progress of work at the site but stressed the need for increased pace in activities to ensure that the project is delivered at the scheduled period.
The Second Niger Bridge is a 1.596 kilometre highway project with six lanes – three lanes each to and from Anambra and Delta states.
It had a 48 months completion period when the project was awarded in 2013.
