Niger Bridge |

The Niger Bridge is not strange to Nigerians especially those from the Eastern Part of the country. The bridge links many states, villages, and cities which makes the bridge a unique one.

The River Niger Bridge in Onitsha (also known as the Onitsha Bridge), Anambra State, Nigeria connects southeastern Nigeria with western Nigeria over the River Niger. It is linked to Asaba in Delta State, Nigeria.

After its completion, the bridge was eight by four hundred and twenty feet (8×420 ft.) with a carriageway of 36 feet centre-truss and a pedestrian walkway on both sides of the carriageway.

A photo has emerged of how cars were transported from Asaba to Onitsha before the now Niger Bridge was commissioned for use. According to the narrative, “People at the Niger River especially those at the Asaba-Onitsha axis use the ferry as a means of crossing. The ferry berths and load at Asaba side. For those with cars, they have to be ferried using the bigger ferries. The ferries carried thousands of vehicles. Mostly Anam canoes were used. The Niger bridge was opened January 1966.

The landmark Niger bridge was built just before the Civil War, the bridge links Asaba to the much larger market city of Onitsha. Before the bridge was built, the only way across the river was by ferry.

These are pictures showing how people transport themselves using the ferry before the construction of the Niger Bridge
