The Federal Controller of Works in Delta, Mr Jimoh Olawale, has announced that the new Second Niger Bridge will be opened for temporary operations on December 15.

Olawale, who spoke in an interview on Wednesday in Asaba, Delta State, however, said that the bridge would be opened for only 30 days.

According to him, the Minister of Works, Babatunde Fashola, ordered the opening of the bridge, which is at 95 percent completion stage, to ease traffic during the Yuletide.

He explained that motorists going towards Owerri direction would divert through the access road near the old Niger Bridge to the new bridge.
