Residents of Dutse – Bwari have appealed to the Federal Capital Territory Administration, FCTA, to expedite action in the completion of the Dutse Alhaji-Bwari road.
The residents decried the slow pace of work on the road, adding that it had caused residents untold hardship.
A resident of Bwari town, Johnson Bello told journalists that residents usually leave home by 5 am daily to enable them get to work in time.
Also, a driver, Alhaji Ismaila Muhktar said that motorists also experience daily extortion by road traffic officials in the area.
“There is no doubt that the FCT Administration is even helping us by expanding the road but we are begging them to hasten the completion of this road”, he pleaded.
Chairman, FCT Ministerial Task Team on Traffic Decongestion, Mr Ikharo Attah appealed for understanding on the part of residents.
He assured them that the work would be delivered within the next two months, based on the FCT minister’s zeal to get the job completed.
On his part, representative of the Federal Capital Development Authority, FCDA, Bayo Baderinwa gave assurance that the contractors would deliver a high-quality job within the stipulated timeframe.
In her remarks, the Assistant Corps Unit Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC in the area, Aderonke Dele hinted that most uniform men that drove against traffic, often made traffic control in the area extremely difficult.
‘’We are capable of easing the traffic here despite the ongoing road expansion work but most uniform officers driving along this road usually follow one way and this is not good’’.
