Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, the Governor of Rivers State, has granted a sum of N8.2 billion for the construction of the state’s 10th flyover along the Rumuokwurushi-Elimgbu axis in the Obio/Akpor Local Government Area.
Elloka Tasie Amadi, the state Commissioner for Works, made the announcement shortly after the state executive council meeting on Thursday.
Governor Wike presided over the meeting, which was held on Thursday at Government House in Port Harcourt.
According to Tasie-Amadi, the project, which is expected to be completed in 12 months, will greatly benefit many sectors of the State’s economy, members of the public, and particularly real estate developers.
“The total length is 840 meters comprising 526.5meters bridge and 313 meters of transition zone to the bridge. The width is 17.6meters in dual carriage configuration and it will feature service lanes, middle terms, pedestal crossing, streets and traffic lights,” he said.
