Hundreds of Port Harcourt residents on Thursday celebrated Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike as he inspected the ongoing construction of Rebisi Flyover Bridge (Former Garrison).
Rebisi Flyover Bridge is one of the three iconic bridges under construction by the Wike Administration to ease traffic congestion in the state.
Governor Wike expressed satisfaction with the quality and pace of work, thanking the workers for their commitment to delivering the project on schedule.
Governor Wike who trekked all through the length of the Rebisi Flyover Bridge, interacted with the workers on site.
The Governor also took out time to talk with residents who trooped out to sing his praises for promoting the development of Port Harcourt.
The Inspection visit to the Rebisi Flyover Bridge revealed that the contractors have finished the preliminary works, while works have been concluded on the substructure of the Flyover Bridges. The piers and the abutments have also been completed, alongside the foundations.
The super-structures of the Flyover Bridges, especially the main pillars are now in place with Port Harcourt residents appreciating the quality of work by the contractors.
Earlier in January, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike personally met with traders and residents to seek their support for the timely completion of the Flyover Bridges.
Governor Wike said that though the exercise is painful, all residents must contribute to ensure the Flyover Bridges are delivered.
“I am here to personally appeal to the people because I feel their pain. But this is a sacrifice everyone must make for the State to move forward.
“To do three Flyover Bridges the same time is not an easy task. Therefore, we must work hard to achieve the target. The Target is that Julius Berger must hand over the three Flyover Bridges on 20th February, 2021,” he said.
