The Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, has assured citizens in Anambra that all the three flyover bridge projects in Awka will be completed by April this year.
He gave the assurance during his tour to the three flyover bridges at Kwata junction where he expressed satisfaction over the quality of work done and the pace at which the contracting firm is pursuing the project in order to deliver on record time.
The bridge when completed will not only ease traffic but will also enhance the aesthetics of the capital city, encourage tourism and boost the state’s economic status.
Governor Obiano also inspected the ongoing coshed Rice Farm road in Anaku and expressed hope that the challenges of last year experienced by the investing firm, coshed farms, other farmers in the area in accessing their farms and evacuating their produce will be tackled as the contractor handling the project has been urged to expedite action towards accelerated construction before the rains come.
The contractor handling the project also allayed fears of any challenge and said major work on the swamp will begin next week.
The governor impulsively patronized a fish seller in the vicinity while making inquiries on how to improve fish drying in the area for surplus production and attainment of fish sufficiency and affordability for all.
The Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, has flagged off the construction of three road-interchange and fly over bridges in the Awka axis of the Enugu-Onitsha expressway.
The projects were awarded at the cost of 5billion naira with a completion period of one year to be constructed at Amawbia Junction, Kwata Junction and Aroma Junction.
He also performed the ground breaking ceremony for the three arms zone at Greenwood Layout, Isiagu, in the capital territory where the new government house, legislative headquarters and judiciary headquarters among other administrative blocks would be built.
The first road interchange and fly over bridge is located at Amawbia Junction in the capital territory along the Enugu-Onitsha expressway.
The second road interchange and fly over bridge is at Kwata Junction and the Governor urged the people to give the contractors all the necessary support and cooperation to complete the project on record time.
The Governor said that the project was part of the plan to transform Awka into a modern and befitting capital territory such that when the new Awka capital territory master plan is fully implemented, the city would be a reference point in the country and in the world.
The Chairman of Awka South Local Government Area commended the effort of the Governor in his resolve to raise the standard of Awka Capital Territory and he gave assurance of their unflinching support to the present administration and its developmental blueprint.
All the projects flagged off were, according to the Governor, part of his resolve to transform Awka, as well as establish a new face of a functional government in Anambra State.
