Ogoni-Opobo-Andoni Unity Road in Rivers State, Sunday.
According to him, “Opobo town is 6 kilometers from this bridge. The bridge that will link Kalaibiama should be ready in the next few weeks and I think technically, it is the last bridge. Work on site has shown that the on-going construction work will reach the axis of Opobo soon, and it all depends on how fast the contractors can change the culvert into a bridge”. Amaechi said.
While expressing satisfaction on the level of job done so far by the contractors, Governor Amaechi urged the contractors to facilitate work on the bridge linking Ikuru and Ngo communities before the raining season.
He further said, “We have disbursed one billion naira to the contractors to facilitate job on the road. The one billion naira was from the 30billion naira we accessed from the savings, and we hope that the contractors will increase the pace of work”.
Amaechi also mentioned that he has instructed the state commissioner for works, Hon. Victor Giadom to ask the contractor to commence binder course on the road project.
“I have asked the commissioner for works to instruct the contractor to commence work on the binder course on the road project”, Amaechi said.
