Weeks after InsideMainland exclusively reported the ongoing massacre at the Anthony-Gbagada Expressway due to lack of a pedestrian bridge in some parts of the express, the government has swiftly responded to the yearnings of the residents in the axis.
InsideMainland can reliably report that the government has commenced efforts that would culminate into the construction of a foot bridge along at the second Pedro end of the expressway.
Earlier today, a government representative alongside officials from the Ministry of Transportation visited the scene.
During the visit, construction workers and other experts from Fountain Construction Company were on site to do a site survey and confirm the soil texture of the area.
InsideMainland also learnt that experts from another Chinese company visited the location on Tuesday, February, 14, 2017.
Speaking on the development, the Patriach and Secretary to the Council of Oworonshoki Youth Forum (COYF), Kabiawu Babajide disclosed to InsideMainland that it is a step in the right direction.
In his words, “the recent happenings shows that the government is listening to the yearnings of the masses who voted them into power. The construction of a bridge in that area will reduce the number of lives lost due to rate of accidents that happen on the expressway.”
You would recall that InsideMainland earlier reported the average number of lives lost to road accidents along the usually busy expressway. As a result, officers from the Ministries of Environment and Trasportation had visited the scene to inspect and also run a survey of the area.
