Julius Berger updates progress of 2nd Niger bridge on new website


Julius Berger Nigeria Plc has launched a website to show Nigerians the progress of the ongoing construction of the 1.6km long 2nd Niger Bridge, 10.3km highway, Owerri interchange and a toll station.

In a statement issued by the company’s media office, Julius Berger invited Nigerians to visit www.secondrivernigerbridge.com, to view photos and videos of  the actual status of construction.

“The objective of the website is to make project progress visible to the general public,” the statement read.

“Visitors to the site will have access to visually driven content mainly photos and videos reflecting the actual status of construction works along with key facts and regularly updated data relevant to project progress.

“The Second Niger Bridge is a Federal Government Project that is being managed by the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing in collaboration with the Nigeria Sovereign Investment Authority. It will bring great relief to the many commuters who currently use the over 50 year old existing bridge.

“It will also link the great markets of Onitsha and Aba, as well as the industrial hub of Nnewi and beyond, to both the Northern and Southern parts of the country.”

The federal government had in November awarded Julius Berger a N206 billion contract for the construction of the second Niger bridge to reduce strain on the current bridge, ease traffic flow, and improve commercial viability of the area.

The company said the project is expected to be completed by February 2022.
