The federal government has taken delivery of the second Niger bridge from Julius Berger, seven months after it was commissioned by former President Muhammadu Buhari.

David Umahi, minister of works, while addressing journalists on Sunday after inspecting the project, said he is satisfied with the level of work done.

Umahi described the project as “impeccable, very beautiful and well completed”.

He said efforts are ongoing to mount street lights on the bridge.

“What we have agreed is to deploy solar solution in the coming weeks so that every night we don’t have to run diesel,” NAN quoted Umahi as saying.

“The roads are going to be completed when we have completed the two inter changes, one is taking us off from Asaba town to cut off the traffic and the other one is going to be done by Reynolds Construction Company (RCC) Ltd.

“President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is very committed to the project and we are going to acquire more, so that we can build service stations, filling stations, restaurants and super markets and other facilities as we see in the western world.

“We are determined to do that; the need to do this with the inter changes is going to be a very smart one, so that over the years we can have a beautiful and maintained road.”

The minister further assured of security on the bridge, noting that CCTV cameras would be installed and some security personnel deployed, so that travellers could get security assistance within five minutes.
