Much has been written about the Second Niger Bridge over the last four years.

But little has been done in terms of real construction progress on the project.

It appears work will soon resume as the Federal Executive Council on Wednesday approved a contract for an 11.9-kilometre link road.

The road that cuts across Anambra and Delta states will gulp about 206 billion naira.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said this to State House correspondents at the end of a meeting of the council presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja.

Mohammed explained that the contract for the link road also includes the provision of associated infrastructure for the bridge.

The contract was awarded to Julius Berger Plc. The firm has already deployed its personnel and tools to site.

The minister stated that the Public Private Partnership model adopted for the project by the last administration failed but that the present government is determined to complete it.
