The Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun,
has extended the ongoing construction work on Panseke-Adigbe Road in Abeokuta, to reach the popular Opako Bridge along Obada town.
This,governor Abiodun said is to provide durable drainage and put a permanent stop to the perennial destruction of the retaining walls on the busy bridge, due to the lack of proper drainage.
NN recalled that the original Panseke-Adigbe Road project contract started but was abandoned by the immediate past Administration of Senator Ibikunle Amosun.
The road as awarded by Amosun was 500-metre short, with the intent to stop road around Alowonle area.
However, in a swift reaction, the current Administration of Governor Abiodun is working with contractors handling the ongoing project towards extending drainage to the bridge, so that there will be proper flow and channeling of water, especially during the rains which have currently destroyed the approach to the bridge, even as the bridge itself remains intact.
According to the press Statement by Abiodun’s Media team, atyesterday afternoon (Saturday), engineers were at the bridge with excavators to put washed off materials back in place so that the road may become motorable, pending the time when drainage work must have reached the site.
The State Government pleads with road users and residents to cooperate with engineers on site, while they carry out their duties in reasonable time.
