The Edo State governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, has commenced reconstruction of 109 dilapidated roads in the three senatorial districts.
The contractors handling the projects were seen with their workers on site on Thursday when journalists went around Benin metropolis to inspect the road projects.
The workers were seen with their equipment on Ugbor-Amagba Road which covers 13.8 kilometres, according to the contractor.
Major reconstruction work is ongoing in parts of Government Reservation Area (GRA) in Benin City, including Boundary Road, as residents expressed appreciation to the Governor Obaseki-led administration for taking advantage of the dry days to fix the roads.
Speaking to journalists at Etete Junction on Adesuwa Road, Assistant Supervisor, Heartland Nigeria Limited, Charles Erua, said they are rehabilitating failed portions of Etete Road.
Erua explained that “after fixing this part of the road our men will move to 1st and 2nd Ugbor as well as other roads in the axis.”
It was gathered that the 109 roads have been grouped into axis; New Benin, GRA, Sokponba, Okhoro, Medical, Agbor Road and Upper Sokponba, Ekenhuan, Siluko and Agbor Road in Edo South Senatorial District.
Others are in Edo Central and Edo North senatorial districts.
Recall that the state government carried out a major audit of bad roads in the state recently, to update the existing data on the conditions of all roads in the state.
