@OP is the bridge 18km or 1.8km , you guys always make silly mistakes or are you paid by politicians.
Meanwhile the Otukpo-Apa-Oweto road has been under construction since when David Mark was senate president.
It's good to know that the present administration is continuing the project.
The project is too slow.

There are matured ways of correcting people that the fellow won't feel offended and explain things to you... it's only an idiot that speaks and type this way! Only someone with no manners and respect for his fellow human being type without analysing the issue at hand...

We are not being paid by any politicians and neither are we sponsored... Please next time, learn to talk maturely, you are not talking to babies...

8 years of senseless wailing can never be expected to produce wisdom. You and your cohorts claimed Jonathan was growing the economy yet he could even add ordinary 1000mw to what he met, 16 years of PDP and their idiotic governance that squandered Billions of dollars, produced darkness yet in your illiterate PDP refugee status you expect magic to happen? What a nasty jokers you are[/s].

Over 50 years later with more technology,its taking us over 5 years to reach 40% ...when a government is serious u know

Egypt had crisis after that added 25000MW and ready to transmit ...buhari came in our average transmitting level was over 5000MW today we would be lucky to have 3000mw

And some people still support his government

OP The bridge is 1.8km, why are you spreading unverified news.
Completion date was slated for May 2019 yet still not completed.
extract:

Mamman said that the bridge, whose construction was awarded to Reynolds Construction Company in 2011, would connect Benue with Nasarawa State.

The question should be how many mega watts of electricity has APC and PDP added in 20 years?. All of you should keep wailing while NIGERIA is sinking. Everyone know APC is replicating PDP.. has NIGERIA been industrialized after 20 years of APC and PDP rule?. What about our health, education and security. With people like you, Nigeria will never progress..

Many may not have heard of the Loko-Oweto Bridge. The Loko-Oweto Bridge is a bridge that will connect the Benue and Nasarawa States. It is an 18km bridge that has been going on close to 3yrs but we are yet to see the conclusion. Now, the team handling this project are ending the logical end, but the PM has its ups and downs moment.

According to Alon Peysin, the project manager at RCC Nigeria, he wrote

In September 2016 I was in position of Bridge/Project Engineer in Loko-Oweto Bridge project team. The project is 2 parallel bridge constructed by the balanced cantilever method. The length of the Bridges is 1835 m included 24 axes. To overcome large thermal expansion of the bridge 4 expansion joints were designed. Two expansion joints are in the middle of the spans.

The expansion joint between axes is designed to transfer bending moment and shear forces between 2 parts of bridges and allow free axial expansion.

As Bridge Engineer, I received the task to plan and execute the installation of the middle span girders of expansion joint. After a case study, I could only find that the same solution was implemented in the world in Otay River Bridge in the US.

We planned all the details.
We checked the position of the crane on top of the barge.
We created the light model of the beam to test the installation, it helped us to learn a lot of new details we didn't think before.

The installation of 2 beams took a couple of days and it was very successful.

I am so proud that I was part of a team of such great project.

The Loko-Oweto Bridge is an 18km bridge project which is in two phases will connect Benue with Nasarawa State. The Director pointed out that the 103 km Otukpo-Apa-Oweto road was ready for inauguration and the whole bridge will be ready and handed over to the Federal Government for inauguration in May.

The bridge upon completion, will provide a vital link between the North, South, East and West part of the country as well as enhance the socio-political and economic activities in the country.

This bridge will open up the North-Central and it will in turn spring up development, because it will spur transportation and businesses in the two states. In the recent past, older generations trekked a whole day to reach Nasarawa State or waited for hours by the river bank for local canoes to ferry them across the river.
