Enugu explains delay in road maintenance

The Enugu State government has said the pavement and surfacing of excavated and stabilised potholes on urban and intercity roads were delayed because of the rains.

A statement by the Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Greg Nnaji, said the persistent rains have made it impossible for the application of “hot rolled asphaltic wearing course for the pavement and surfacing”.

Nnaji, who reassured the people of the government’s commitment to complete the road in time, said “we will take advantage of any available dry weather window to complete the maintenance work at the respective locations/clusters”.

“Consequently, pavement and surfacing are ongoing at Ogui and Otigba junctions, down to Bissalla Road because of the favourable weather in Enugu city at the moment,” he added.
