JOS – The Flyover and Dualisation of the British-American Road to Lamingo Junction Roundabout in Jos North local government has progressed steadily, as the contractor sustains his commitment to complete the work on schedule.
A visit to the site shows the level of asphalting works on the slip roads around the main flyover and the stretching from the flyover to the second bridge.
Engineers were seen busy carrying out several activities, including intermittent temperature measurement, density and other bituminous properties of the asphalt as part of the processes of quality control.
Already, the main structure of the flyover has been done, while the connecting bridges towards the Lamingo Junction Roundabout are also completed.
Motorists and residents have expressed delight at the pace of work and are eager to have the flyover and dualised road commissioned and opened to traffic, which will make life easier for them.
They commended Governor Simon Bako Lalong for initiating the project and keeping his promise to ensure its completion before the end of his Rescue Administration.
During the governor’s last visit to the site, he stressed to the contractor, Craneburg Construction Nigeria Ltd, that the project must be completed on schedule, as it is one of those to be commissioned by President Muhammadu Buhari soon.
