The Federal Government on Thursday opened the second Niger Bridge between Asaba and Onitsha to motorists for temporary use.
A NAN correspondent who visited the 2nd Niger Bridge observed that vehicles were plying the bridge from Asaba to Onitsha at top speed.
The Federal Govt. had promised to open the Niger bridge for temporary use from Dec. 15 to Jan. 15.
The temporary measure is to decongest traffic from the old bridge during the Yuletide.
NAN also reported a heavy security presence at the bridge to ensure the safety of life and property.
