The construction firm emerged the preferred bidder for the contract.

The Federal Government has completed the procurement process for the construction of a second Niger Bridge with Julius Berger-Africa Infrastructure Management (AIM) Consortium emerging the preferred bidder.

Briefing journalists on Friday in Abuja, the Minister of Works, Mike Onolememen, said the government had earmarked N30 billion under Subsidy Re-investment Empowerment (SURE-P) programme for the project.

Mr. Onolememen said that Julius Berger-AIM Consortium emerged winner after slugging it out with other world-class construction companies, which included ARM Consortium, Bouygues Consortium, China Harbour Consortium, and Johnson-Matiere Consortium.

According to him, the project, packaged under Public-Private Partnership (PPP) arrangement for a period of 25 years, will be delivered under design, finance, build, operate and transfer model.

The minister said that the ministry had obtained a “no objection’’ from the Infrastructure Concessioning Regulatory Commission (ICRC), which regulates all transactions under PPP.

“Having obtained the no objection, the ministry launched into the second phase of the project,” the minister said.

He said that the second phase included detailed Hydrological and Topological Survey, Geotechnical Survey, detailed Environmental Impact Assessment and in-depth Traffic Survey of the project.

He said that building a second Niger Bridge was one of the election promises of President Goodluck Jonathan to the people of Nigeria.

The bad state of the first Niger Bridge had elicited calls, particularly from the people of the South-Eastern part the country for the construction of a second bridge.

    We must thank God for this development. It is long overdue. The South-East deserves a Marshall
    Plan to roll back the years of neglect. This is a purposeful Government, irrespective of numerous challenges from the North, that should be amply rewarded in 2015.

      There is a company there building Julius Berger Construction. Are they located out of Savannah, Georgia and do they have individuals such an engineer by the name of John Hilbert and his daughter of 4 Years of age Lisa Hilbert? I am under the assumption that his laptop, wallot, cash and other things were stollen the first or second day on the job. Then while at a coworkers estate his daughter of 4 was hit by a car and just got out of the hospital today. I pray you can help. He has no money to get his daughter home to continue treatment and did not have any for further care there… atkinsmichell@ymail.com
