gun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun has envisioned the possibility of providing durable drainage by extending the ongoing construction work on the Panseke-Adigbe Road in Abeokuta to the popular Opako Bridge, along Obada Road.
This, we gathered was to put a permanent stop to the perennial destruction of the retaining walls on the busy bridge, due to lack of proper drainage and channelization.
The original Panseke-Adigbe Road project contract started by the Amosun govt but later abandoned by the government was, 500-metre short, with the intent to stop the new road around Alowonle area.
However, in a swift reaction, the current Administration of Governor Abiodun has started working with contractors handling the ongoing project towards extending drainage to the bridge, so that there would be proper flow and channeling of water, especially during the rains which have currently destroyed the approach to the bridge, even as the bridge itself remains intact.
As at Saturday afternoon, engineers were at the bridge with excavators to put washed off materials back in place so that the road could become motorable, pending the time drainage work would reach the site.
The State Government pleaded with road users and residents to cooperate with engineers on site, while they carried out their duties in reasonable time.
