Residents of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) have been advised to follow movement directory and use alternative roads while commuting in the city.
This is as major roads within the Federal Capital City (FCC) would be diverted to enable contractors handling road resurfacing to carry out the projects unhindered and on time.
Recall that the new FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike, on assumption pledged that he would resurface all the aged roads in the Phase I of the City including Wuse, Maitama and Asokoro, among others, and the time has come to commence work.
Wike dropped a hint while inspecting projects in Ushafa, Bwari Area Council, that he would flag off resurfacing projects on Monday, 11 September 2023.
A statement signed by the Executive Secretary, Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA), Engr. Shehu Hadi Ahmad, reveals that no fewer than 135 roads within Garki, Wuse, Gwarinpa and Maitama Districts would be rehabilitated during the period.
It reads in part: “The affected roads will be closed to traffic and diverted to adjoining roads for safety concern and smooth conduct during rehabilitation works.
“Directorate of Road Traffic Services (DRTS), the Police and Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) have been duly informed of this exercise and shall be on ground to enforce seamless traffic control and management during the period.
His words: “We regret any inconveniences these rehabilitation works may cause residents and visitors during the period.”
