Rivers State Executive Council has approved the construction of a five hundred and five meters long flyover at the GRA Junction along the Port Harcourt Aba Expressway.
This was approved during the Wednesday, June 24, 2020 meeting that held at Government House, Port Harcourt and presided over by Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike.
Briefing journalists after the meeting, the Commissioner for Works, Austin Ben-Chioma said the council also approved the dualisation of Ezimbu Link Road connecting Stadium Road from GRA junction and the Tombia Road extension linking Ikwerre road.
He said Council considered the Rumuola flyover not more fitting for the city and approved its expansion to become four lanes to ease vehicular movement and boost economic activities.
According to him, to ensure that motorists do not suffer untold hardship during the road constructions, the state government will create alternative routes.
