Delta State Commissioner for Works, Mr James Augoye has said that the deteriorated Agbor- Abraka-Eku road will no longer undergo remedial repairs as the road has expired and needs total reconstruction.
Augoye stated this on Thursday, October 15, 2020 at a media parley with select journalists at his office in Asaba, noting that the road has been approved for reconstruction by the Federal Government and awarded to CGC Nigeria Limited.
The failed road which has taken a toll on motorists plying the route especially Deltans, had been repaired twice by the Okowa administration.
While disclosing that the State Government will no longer embark on repairs on the road, the Commissioner however said that, if the Federal Government failed to commence work, the State Government might reconsider its decision.
On the ongoing construction of Storm Water Drainage in the state capital, he informed that the 6th phase of the project which will link the Summit Road to Anwai River, will commence in 2021.
Augoye called on Deltans to take ownership of government projects in their communities to prevent vandals from destroying such projects sighting the removal of Inter-Lock bricks from constructed roads and Iron Steps from underground drainage.
He assured of the State Government’s commitment to open up more roads across the state especially in rural communities as captured in the proposed 2021 budget.
