The project was started last year and awarded to CCECC. The governor commissioned the project today.
The governor in his statement said the decision to embark on the project was informed by the strategic importance of the axis as a major gateway to the state. He said the project was aimed at ensuring smooth flow of traffic along the express, safeguard the lives of the people who uses the express and project the image of a truly global city to visitor.
“What we set out to achieve with this project was to ensure smooth flow of traffic along the express, safeguard the lives of our people, who had to run across the express and project the image of a truly global city to our visitors. Today, we are delighted that we have not only succeeded in transforming the landscape of this axis but with the slip road, laybys and pedestrian bridge, we have given a new and pleasant experience to all entering and exiting our state.
“We will not stop with the axis. This is an ongoing process and we are working to create solutions to traffic congestion in every part of the State. If your neighbourhood or community is experiencing traffic challenges, be rest assured that we will soon be there” he said.
