He said work on the project was delayed due to insufficient fund, adding that the approval of the fund by the Federal Government was part of palliative to cushion the hardship of transporters and commuters plying the road.

According to him, the work is coming as a result of the rainy season which halted work on the project, thereby worsening its already deplorable condition.

He urged travellers using the road to be patient and exercise caution during the rehabilitation work. Mr Xu Hua, Site Manager, CGC Nigeria Limited, the company handling the main construction, attributed the snail speed of the project to non-release of funds.( NAN)
