 A number of contractors handling road projects in various parts of Delta State are back to their project locations in line with the recent directive by the State Government.

The State Commissioner for Information, Mr. Patrick Ukah, in a statement in Asaba yesterday, said that it is not true that the contractors abandoned their works as the rains contributed to the delay in the completion of the projects, since it was decided that the contractors should wait for the dry season to continue the projects full blast.

Speaking specifically on the 4km Burutu township roads project awarded to Broadline Construction Company Limited, Mr. Ukah revealed that the project is 48% completed as the contractor has done 1,800m length of drains and 700m length of rigid pavement.

He disclosed that the contractor is in the process of mobilising a mobile asphalt plant to site and as soon as that is done, the work will receive the needed zest to push it to its conclusion.

On other ongoing road projects in the state, Mr. Ukah said that the contractor handing the Asaba/Okpanam Road has returned to site with the setting in of the dry season and is currently working to repair the parts of the project affected during the last rains, adding that earth works and laying of crushed stone base course is ongoing around the Legislative Quarters along the road. 

He disclosed that the contractor for the Okerenkoko road has gone back to site, while that for Oporaza road will resume work very soon, adding that rehabilitation and asphalt overlay of Obutobo I, Obutobo II - Sokebolou - Yokri road in  Burutu Local Government is 47% completed as earth works and stone base have been completed.

The Commissioner for Information further stated that the State Government has directed the contractor for the Ayakoromo Bridge project to resume work immediately.
