According to the federal administration, articulated trucks are not permitted when the second Niger Bridge is temporarily opened for usage over the holiday season.

Adeoye Irelewuyi, the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) state commander for Anambra, said this in a statement on Friday in Onitsha.

Irelewuyi announced that from December 15 to January 1, 2023, commuters travelling from the country’s western to eastern regions could use the multibillion-naira bridge.

He said, “From December 15, 2022, to January 1, 2023, the new bridge will be open only to motorists and other road users coming from the west to the east, through Asaba.

“From January 2 to January 15, 2023, only vehicles from east to west will be allowed to use the new bridge.

“Heavy-duty trucks and articulated vehicles will not be allowed on the bridge during this period.”

The FRSC chief urged public members to cooperate with all traffic managers to ensure free traffic flow during the period.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Irelewuyi also stated that the FRSC would collaborate with relevant agencies to ensure that gridlocks experienced at the old bridge were eliminated during the period.
