Governor Idris Wada, today, flagged off the construction of grade separation interchange (flyover bridge), at Ganaja junction, Lokoja.
The flyover, when completed, will ease the daily gridlock that is currently being experienced at Ganaja Junction occasioned by heavy vehicular movement inflow from Ganaja road, Lokongoma axis.
The flyover bridge project will be handled TEC Engineering at the cost of N4.6billion and will be completed in 18 months.
Wada, in his remarks, expressed joy that the project is seeing the light of the day despite paucity of funds occasioned by shrinking revenue allocations. He noted that the flyover project had been a top priority of his administration since its inception.
According to the Commissioner for Works, Engr Godwin Onamah, the construction of flyover bridge across Ganaja Junction will improve the socio-economic activities of students, civil servants, traders and others within Lokoja.
