Flyover: Julius Berger work strongest, integrity benchmark in Nigeria –  Wike 




Rivers state Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has described the technical engineering capabilities and competence of the country’s construction sector leader, Julius Berger Plc, as “the strongest and most reputable engineering integrity benchmark” in Nigeria.

Governor Wike made the remarks during the commissioning of several high grade infrastructural development projects successfully delivered as contracted and scheduled by the company in Port Harcourt last week.

A press statement by the media unit of the construction giant, Monday, said it was serial celebrations in the Rivers state capital last week as the newly constructed and commissioned projects included a flyover, a dualised road, a new House of Assembly Quarters, and another road dualisation flag off. 

The weeklong ceremonies commenced when the governor of Lagos state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu arrived Port Harcourt as Special Guest of Honour to commission the newly completed Orochiri-Worokwu flyover bridge. The Lagos state governor congratulated the Rivers state government and commended the dependable contractor for the good and durable quality of infrastructures being delivered in Rivers State for commissioning for the beneficial use of the people.

Julius Berger’s regional manager, Engr. Juergen Fischer, who represented the company’s managing director at the events, on behalf of the executive management and the board, expressed the company’s appreciation to the government and people of Rivers state for the confidence reposed in Julius Berger as the contractor to deliver the key infrastructural projects.

Fischer said the Orochiri-Worokwu flyover was the 7th in the series of successfully constructed flyovers by Julius Berger for the Rivers State Government. According to Fischer, with the commissioning of the Orochiri/Worokwu Flyover and all its adjoining service roads, turns and roundabouts, the project closes the last gaps on the strategic Aba expressway within the Rivers State capital, Port Harcourt, freeing it of every travel obstruction.

Fischer also proudly recalled Julius Berger’s landmark construction and delivery of the Rebisi, Rumuola, Oro-abali as well as the new GRA flyovers, promising successful deliveries of other ongoing projects being handled by the company for the Rivers state government.

Another major infrastructural project, the Ogbunabli/Eastern Byepass also constructed by Julius Berger Plc, was commissioned by the state government during the ceremonies. The Special Guest of Honour for the ceremony was the former Governor of Sokoto state, Senator Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko.
