The 2NB project is a very significant project that will decongest the existing Niger Bridge, boost economic activities, and connect the South-East with the rest of the country. The project and its link roads are expected to be 46.9km long, connecting Asaba (Delta State) and Onitsha (Anambra State). The project is split into 3 phases:
Phase 1 of the project involves the following:
- Construction of 1.6km bridge over the River Niger
- Construction of 10.3km approach roads from Asaba and Onitsha;
- Construction of two (2) secondary bridges at Amakon Village Road and Atani Road of 21.7m each (completed); and
- Construction of a new cloverleaf interchange at Onitsha – Owerri Road (ongoing).
- This phase has attained 84.2% completion as of the first quarter (Q1) of 2022.
