Delta pledges Asaba storm water project completion
After inspection of ongoing construction work on the Nnebisi Road drain, connecting the Direct Labour Agency (DLA) Road, Jesus Saves Road and Agric Road in the Delta state capital of Asaba, the State Government has expressed hope that the project will be completed in May.
The Commissioner for Works, Mr. James Augoye who spoke in Asaba said that the government has created effective measures for the realisation of the project within specification and time.
While commending the residents of the affected areas for their patience, he assured them of the state government’s readiness to realise the projects.
According to him, once the Nnebisi section of the project is connected with the DLA/Jesus Saves/Agric Roads project, the environmental problems affecting the residents would have been fully addressed.
On the menace of flood water on DBS, Cabinet office Road and environs, he noted that the ongoing drainage (sewer) project from Marian Babangida Road will effectively address the situation.
During the inspection of the Airport Road drain, Okpanam, and the ongoing long drain project from Okpanam Road to Ibori Golf Course in Asaba, he told the contractor in charge of the Airport Road project to increase the pace of work to avert the devastating impacts of flood in the flood-prone areas.
The commissioner equally called on the contractor handling Okpanam Road to work round- the- clock, to deliver the project on specification and time.
Earlier, the commissioner who inspected the ongoing Asaba Airport Runaway, expressed satisfaction with the pace of work, adding that the project is very vital for the socio-economic advancement of the state.
He noted that the project, when completed in four months time, will be able to harbour bigger aircraft, a fact he said, will benefit the state financially.
