Palliative Work On Umuokpu Awka Axis Of Enugu - Onitsha Expressway begins

 Anambra state government yesterday started palliative work on the failed portion of Umuokpu-Awka axis of the Enugu -Onitsha express way.

The government has equally ordered for immediate commencement of palliative works on Tarzan Junction and Mgbemena axis of the Onitsha -Owerri road.

The Commissioner for Works, Engineer Marcel Ifejiofor, accompanied by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Mr Emeka Ohuoha and other directors in the Ministry inspected the Umuokpu Awka axis where massive work was on going and later Onitsha axis.

Speaking at the site, Engineer Ifejiofor, said his Ministry was responding to the directive from Governor Willie Obiano, who said since the rains persisted, something should be done to alleviate the plight of the road users.

Engineer Ifejiofor said that the work will be concluded within forty-eight hours calling on road users to exercise patience as government feels their pains and would not allow it to continue.

He called on the federal government to deploy contractors to the road and other federal roads in the state which need urgent intervention.


The Project Manager, Mr Tony Francis, said they were mobilised by government to put the road back to use, promising to deliver on schedule.
