The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) said it had concluded plans to mobilize road contractors back to site.
Executive Secretary, Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA), Umar Jibrin stated this while on assessment tour of the Bwari-Dutsen-Alhaji roads axis.
He said the return to site by the contractors will help to ease the perennial traffic gridlock along the route.
Jibrin who led some top management staff on the spot assessment of the road, noted that the project was impeded by the incessant rain fall , but he said it be completed to relieve residents of the stress.
The ES explained that the projects, involving full dualisation of the roads, were not abandoned as speculated by some residents, but suffered some set back due to the COVID-19 and other challenges.
According to him, works would resume on the roads within the next three weeks and commitment would be made to ensure its completion.
“When we say complition, we are talking of the totality of what needs to be done here.e have some drainage works to be done and other complimentary works.
“But the one that will satisfy the traffic movement is something that can be done in then next two months. In the next three weeks the contractor will demobilize here. We can never do anything where the rain is here.
” We are only coming to appreciate the level at which the rain has impacted on the road. Now that we are going down, the rain is subsiding, the contractor had to come back and do this work in a very short time. The project is not abandoned. Everything is on cause, the contractor is on-ground”, Gambo added.
