The Rivers Governor, Nyesom Wike is planning to erect three flyover projects in strategic parts of the State capital. The projects would be cited at Garrison, Rumuokoro and Artillery. The gridlock around these areas have been a source of concern for commuters and traffic wardens saddled with the task of controlling traffic. Wike hadn’t done anything about executing the projects which have been on the drawing board since the Amaechi years as part of the Greater Port Harcourt plan. With the Rivers administration poised to celebrate 100 days in office, Wike recently led a team of engineers to sites for the proposed projects. “Today we undertook an assessment of preliminary works for 3 flyover bridges to be cited at Garrison, Rumuokoro and Artillery”, Governor Wike said on Twitter. “These projects when completed would have a profound impact on our economy and ease transportation to parts of the state”, the governor who would be serving another tenure of four years remarked. Recall that Governor Amaechi completed the Eleme interchange which was conceived by Sir Celestine Omehia and built the Mile III flyover and Obiri Ikwerre flyover. Telegraph investigations suggest that certain structural provisions may been put underground by the Amaechi administration, pursuant to the construction of the projects. Insiders say that the completion of the three flyover projects may turn out to be the governor’s greatest effort to provide infrastructure and ease traffic jams within Port Harcourt city.
