The Muhammadu Buhari administration recently commissioned the Urasi bridge. The bridge is important because it links two South-Eastern states, Anambra and Imo.
ONITSHA GRA learned that the rehabilitation of the 50 meters bridge took two years. Urasi bridge has been in existence since 1960, but was neglected by previous administrations. As a result, it collapsed in 2018 and caused untold hardship to commuters that plied the route ever since. Because it is a major route, youths of nearby communities took advantage of it and collected tolls from motorists.
The federal government started the reconstruction of the bridge in 2018 and has now completed it. The bridge now wears a modern look.
This means a lot to the people of South-East, especially those who ply the road as journey is now smooth and hitch-free.
