The Governor of Enugu State, Peter Mbah, on Thursday, flagged off multiple projects across the state, including the construction of New Enugu City roads, made up of 17km dual carriageway and feeder roads.
Also flagged off was the 40km Owo-Ubahu-Amankanu-Neke-Ikem dual carriageway, and the construction/reconstruction of 71 urban roads in Enugu.
At the Premier Layout Road project awarded to IDC Construction Limited where he carried out the symbolic flag-off of the construction/reconstruction of 71 urban roads, Mbah said the urban roads would be simultaneously executed and delivered before the end of December.
“These 71 roads as identified in the first phase will be completed between now and December. The funds for these roads have been secured. So, there is no reason the contractors will not complete these roads as and when due.
“We are not going to entertain any variation, any delay or time overrun because the funds will be provided and we will ensure that we put in place close monitor to not only ensure that the standards we have agreed are met, but also that the timelines are met strictly.”
“We are also providing the highest quality of roads. We are all making sure that the roads are well-paved. You are not going to have open drainage so that you will have pedestrian parts well paved, you will have streetlights and roads that will last us a long time,” he stated.
