The reconstructed 28.2 kilometre Nkpor-Amawbia Road has been set as the minimum standard for all road constructions in Anambra State, under the administration of Chief Willie Obiano.
The governor made the declaration yesterday while commissioning the completed road at the Nkpor Round-about, near Onitsha.
Speaking, Governor Obiano noted that the Nkpor-Amawbia Road was a quality construction work undertaken in line with the best standards in road construction around the world.
According to Obiano, “I have to make it clear that this road was started by my predecessor in 2008 and was done up to 18 kilometres. My administration has completed 28 kilometres of the road with end-to-end drainage and clear road signs and markings, as well as the street-lighting which will soon be completed.”
The governor called on the Nkpor community and residents to ensure that the road is preserved.
He also informed them that government operatives are working hard to fish-out criminals who disturb the peace of the community, and assured that the security of lives and property remained a cardinal programme of his government.
Obiano also commended the quality of work on the PHCN road, saying that “my administration started and completed this road which provides access to an important facility. I want to assure Ndi Anambra that despite paucity of funds, we have not abandoned any road awarded by my predecessor. This is in line with my promise of ‘3Cs’: to complete, to commission, and commence new projects.”
Earlier, Commissioner for Works, Barrister Law Chinwuba said that the Nkpor-Amawbia Road was awarded and executed by CCC at the cost of N9.2billion while the PHCN Road with its appurtenances cost N490million.
He explained that the on-going lighting would soon be completed and called on the residents of communities within the road corridors to take ownership and ensure that people do not cut-through the roads, burn tyres or erect bumps.
Thanking the governor for the projects, the Idemmili North Local Government chairman, Hon. Emmanuel Idemobi said that the communities and towns in the area were happy and grateful to the governor.
He assured that they would continue to support the activities and policies of the Obiano administration.
