The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) said it had taken steps towards preventing unnecessary traffic gridlock along the popular AYA-Kugbo-Nyanya road, by parleying with the Chinese contractors handling the road project for the federal government.
The Senior Special Assistant on Monitoring, Inspection, and Enforcement to FCT Minister, Ikharo Attah, who led heads of traffic management agencies to the construction site, said decision that affects traffic along that road axis, should not be too impromptu, as it could cripple socio-economic activities.
Attah while urging the construction engineers to always create synergy with relevant traffic management agencies, noted that early and proper communication can save commuters of the excruciating traffic pains.
He opined that early communication would enable the relevant agencies to massively deplore human resources that will ensure a seamless traffic flow, especially when there are any accidental or construction emergencies.
According to him, FCTA had demonstrated commitment and support to the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing over the road project and would do more to ensure its completion.
He went further to commend the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) Nyanya unit Commander, Sabena Musa, and her men, for the sacrifices they made in controlling the terrifying traffic gridlock.
This is coming on the heels of a hellish traffic experience which commuters and residents had on AYA-Kugbo-Nyanya road, spanning for hours on Thursday, over an emergency diversion that was said to have been created by construction contractors without proper communication.
