Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State, has set in motion, modalities for the completion of Ughelli-Asaba Road dualisation project.
The Special Project Director in charge of the road, Chief Sunny Onuesoke, made the disclosure while addressing newsmen during an inspection tour of the project.
He said the state government had directed the contractor handling Sector A of the road to return to site to complete the project despite the paucity of fund facing the government.
Onesoke said that when the construction of the dual carriage way is completed, it will connect the various communities, towns and cities, opening them up for commercial activities that will also herald other economic developmental endeavours.
He pointed out that the road will be a major incentive and bait for investors to come and take advantage of business potentials in communities linking the expressway, adding that the value of every other initiative in the administration’s development agenda would be more meaningful and valued when such can be accessed easily by the people.
“Investors will either be encouraged to build warehouse for storage of agricultural raw materials for production or storage of finished products to be transported outside the state. Some investors might decide to establish industry here hence the road is motor able for transportation of goods in and out. Such investment will lead to provision of employment,” he said.
