Delta Govt. Says Dualising Nnebisi Road Nears Completion

 Nnebisi Road in Delta StateThe Delta State Government says it has kept its promise to dualise the Nnebisi road which is about 70% completed, from the traffic light to the cable Point which terminates at the bank of the River Niger.

The government says the development was to actualise the vision of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa’s administration of even infrastructural development in the state.

The state’s Commissioner for Works, James Augoye, made the disclosure in Asaba, the Delta State capital, south-south Nigeria.

Augoye revealed that the road construction is in two phases with the first phase from Nnebisi Road to the Cable Market which is about 1.71 kilometres.

He added that the second phase would be from the market to River Niger as a single carriage road.

The Commissioner gave an insight on the characteristics and value of the road, stressing that the government would only embark on projects that were geared towards the economic development of the state.

He pointed out that without good roads, it would be impossible for economic activities to thrive, even as more deliverable was expected from the government.

The Cable Market is at the centre of the connection between the Igalas in Kogi State, the Igbos of Asaba in Delta State and the Igbos of Nteje in Anambra State.

Although some of the traders had raised concerns on the project, they commended the state government for its efforts so far.

They said the road was known to be very bad as it distorts the activities of farmers, traders and other road users.

Speaking in Asaba, the Delta State capital in Nigeria’s southern region, Governor Okowa gave the assurance that the project would be completed within three months.

He revealed that his administration had started lots of ongoing projects at the moment with about four roads being awarded in Okpe Local Government Area (LGA) and other LGAs in the state.

The Governor was accompanied by his Deputy, Barrister Kingsley Otuaro, some commissioners and other top government officials to the inspection of the ongoing road projects.

He disclosed his plans to tackle erosion while explaining that the current surface drains cannot meaningfully take care of the water during the rainy season.

Governor Okowa said that measures had been put in place to ensure that all contractors handling road projects in the state deliver quality work.
