This was made known by the Minister for Works, David Umahi, while featuring on a Channels Television programme, Sunday Politics, on Sunday, March 31, 2024.
Umahi said part of the repair work at the bridge which has been scheduled to reopen in the coming days, includes the installation of CCTV to combat crime and illegal mining around the bridge.
Umahi said, “When you talk about the total rehabilitation of the bridge, you talk about the deck.
“Mr President has released the money and I can say that 99 per cent of the project is done. But what is to be done is additional work: we are putting up solar lights; we are replacing the generator lights with solar lights
“We are putting up CCTV both on top of the bridge and under the bridge because the President told me that part of the problem we are having is people who are doing illegal mining of the sand. And I agree with him. I have seen it. They even go as far as even destroying the concrete to anchor their small boats.”
