FG Releases N206bn For Second Niger Bridge Project

THE Federal Government has awarded N206 billion contract for the main work on the Second Niger Bridge, Minister of Power, Works and Housing Babatunde Fashola said yesterday.

Fashola, who spoke in Abuja during an interactive session with reporters, noted that the contract was awarded to Julius Berger Construction Company.

He said the project, expected to be completed in 36 months, would be funded under the Presidential Infrastructure Development Fund (PIDF).

According to him, funding the project under PIDF means that work would no longer stop on account of lack of funding.

He added that the Lagos-Ibadan expressway and Abuja-Kaduna-Zaria-Kano road projects would also be funded under the PIDF.

Fashola said the contract for the main work on the Second Niger Bridge was awarded after the completion of the four phases of the project.

According to him, the early works were preliminary projects to be completed before the main work, adding that all the early works were done in the river and not visible from the existing bridge.

With the award of the main work, the minister said there will be a lot of piling works in the water and that is what people will see.
