Gwagwalada Area Council said it is set to bring back to life the rested road maintenance unit which would help in the repairs of various roads in the council.

Secretary of the council, Alhaji Usman Yahaya who disclosed this in an interview with newsmen recently said the road maintenance unit would see to the repairs and maintenance of roads that could not be constructed or rehabilitated by the council.

'We want to bring into life the road maintenance unit of the area council which will maintain those roads that we cannot as of now award for construction or rehabilitation. These include the Secretariat Road, Park Road and One Way. All these roads are those we can use little resources to repair,' he explained.

Yahaya also revealed that most of the ongoing projects in the council were at high percentages of completion adding that more projects would be awarded once those projects have been completed.

'Most of the projects that are ongoing in the council have reached a high percentage of completion. Once we have paid at least 75 to 80 per cent of most of our projects, we will award contracts for other projects that need to be done. For now, Dobi Township Road has been awarded and work will commence any time because compensation is being made for the site now,' he added.

The secretary also said the council had commenced removal of dirt from drainages and urged residents of the council to avoid blocking drainages warning that whoever violates the directive would be tried in the mobile court and sanctioned appropriately.
