By Stephen Olufemi Oni, Ilorin
Residents along Yebumot roundabout/Adeta roundabout as well as commuters and motorists plying the route in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, have commended the State Government for bringing succour and relief to them with the completion of the 2.1-kilometre project.
The dualized road is with drainage on both sides of the road, while the centre median has also been completed with interlocks and asphalt.
Traders in the area also said their businesses have started booming due to the dual carriage way project that the state government has just completed, adding that they initially relocated to another place due to the bad nature of the road, but they are now back with the completion of the road.
A cross section of motorists interviewed praised the State Governor, Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, for bringing succour to road users and motorists plying the area, particularly commercial vehicle operators and Okada riders.
They also commended the Contractor, JMK Construction Company Limited, that handled the dual carriage road project for working according to specifications and doing a good and standard job.
A cross section of the residents similarly expressed appreciation to the supervising Ministry, the Ministry of Works under the headship of the State Commissioner for Works, Engr. Suleiman Rotimi Iliyasu and the Consultant for proper monitoring of the project by ensuring that the work is done to specifications.
Engr. IIiyasu reiterated that the AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq administration is committed to unearthing the social economic potential of the rural and urban communities across the state.
Motorists and Okada riders are, however, cautioned against excessive speeding to avoid avoidable accidents on the road, more so that students ply the road on daily basis.
Meanwhile, work has also commenced on the second section of the project which is from Adeta roundabout to Mount Camel area along Oloje Road in Ilorin, the state capital.
At the project site, earthwork is already ongoing, drainage has also been completed on one side, while another drainage work has commenced on the other side of the alignment.
The contractor handling the project, JMK Construction Company Limited, assured that the job will be completed within the scheduled time and done to specifications.
