As preparation for Christmas and New Year festivities gears up, the Anambra Road Maintenance Agency said it has embarked on repairing of dilapidated portions of roads in all parts of the state.
The Managing Director of the agency, Mr Emeka Okoye, who disclosed this in an interview, said that over 30 roads had been fixed while several others were currently undergoing attention. “We have fixed potholes at Roban Stores Road, Udoka Estate, Prisons Road, Aroma-Ifite Road and Amaku Hospital- Amaenyi Market Road, Club Road, Crescent Spring Road, St. Thomas Aquinas Church Road and Best Western Meloch Hotel Road, among others.
“We are doing asphalt patching. We are also patching with the Dura Patcher vehicles acquired by the state governor. The government also engaged contractors, who are carrying out similar patching in Onitsha North, Onitsha South, Nnewi North, Nnewi South and other local government areas,” he added.
He assured that with this and other efforts put in place by the state government that the state roads would be decongested throughout the yuletide and beyond.
