The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has inspected the ongoing construction of Ohonre, Benin Technical College, and 19th Street Roads, among other inner circular and linking roads within the Ugbowo axis of Benin City.

The initiatives, according to the governor, are a part of ongoing efforts by his administration to improve traffic flow in the Ugbowo axis of the Benin city. The governor expressed satisfaction with the quality and speed of the construction works.

Along with other senior government officials, Obaseki was accompanied on the inspection tour by Engr. Osikhena Omo Ojior, Permanent Secretary of the Edo State Ministry of Roads and Bridges.

The governor expressed hope that before the rains started, asphalting would have started on the roads, noting that the project had advanced greatly since the last inspection.

He added, “I am reasonably pleased with the work done so far on the routes examined today,”   I’m happy and shocked because I had no idea the job would be this substantial. Our goal is to improve traffic flow throughout Edo State, especially in the metropolitan area of Benin City.

“The Ugbowo axis is the source of a lot of traffic, surrounded by several villages, and since the by-pass is incomplete due to the lack of circular and inner linking roads, we must start building inner circle roads. One of the highways that will carry traffic from Ugbowo to Siluko and down to Ekenwan is the 19th Street. We are building two other streets in addition to 19th Street.

Obaseki said, “Work has advanced tremendously since we reviewed these projects around five weeks ago, and I am confident that before the rain comes, they will have finished the stone base and started asphalting.”
