OVERVIEW OF: Abia: The roads I build will stand test of time - Gov Ikpeazu
Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu says his government will deliver an Abia State University Teaching Hospital, ABSUTH, Road with a lifespan of not less than 35 years.
Governor Ikpeazu made this declaration when he paid an inspection visit to the road. He expressed satisfaction with the quality of the Cement Technology being applied on the road and noted that even with the quality of the cement work, a full layer of asphalt must be applied on the road in line with the Ikpeazu standard.
The Abia governor also assured the residents of Nwaobasi Estate in Ogbor Hill that the road project started by his administration in their estate will be delivered in six weeks.
He noted that the residents of Nwaobasi Estate have struggled for several years with bad roads which have exposed their area to criminal activities,
Governor Ikpeazu noted that the bad road in the area makes it difficult for security agencies to patrol effectively.
He directed the contractor to ensure that the road has proper drainage and promised that upon completion, the entire road will have a full complement of street lights.
The Governor further disclosed that the design of Omuma Road will link the Cemetery Road and be pushed all the way down to Ariaria Market through the Old Express Road.
He assured that the Omuma road will look exactly like Osusu Road since it is the same contractor who is handling both projects.
The State Chief Executive said the project will be done using the same Rigid Pavement Technology and would have a standard drainage system on both sides of the end.
