Residents and motorists plying the busy Warri and Effurun roads have expressed joy with the mobilisation to the site of Julius Berger to commence the construction of flyover bridges and road expansion works in the twin metropolis of Delta State.
The construction giant on Monday mobilised to DSC Roundabout to commence the construction of the three flyovers, cloverleaf, pedestrian bridges and ancillary road expansion projects as part of the plans of Governor Sheriff Oborevwori’s administration for the infrastructure development and urban renewal of Warri, Uvwie and environs.
A supervising engineer from the State Ministry of Works, Emmanuel Oghorodje who was on the ground to ensure the smoothness of the operation informed that the contractor had completed the planning and demarcation of the roads before mobilising to the site and expressed confidence that with the commitment of the Governor Oborevwori to ensuring the speedy completion of the projects, the company will deliver as scheduled.
He assured that measures have been put in place to reduce traffic jams on the road while the construction works are on, and urged road users to follow instructions and obey the traffic officers.
Many of the motorists lauded Governor Oborevwori for the landmark projects and called for their speedy completion, just as many of the traders in the area were full of praises for the Governor, noting that when completed the projects will boost economic activities in the metropolis.
It would be recalled that on October 18, 2023, the Delta Government and Julius Berger Nigeria Plc signed a N78 billion contract for the construction of three flyovers, a cloverleaf, pedestrian bridges and ancillary road expansion projects in the oil-rich Warri and Effurun metropolis, regarded as the economic nerve centre of Delta State.
