The FCT Administration Ministerial Task Team on Traffic Management has appealed to the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing to repair potholes on the ever busy A.Y.A-Kugbo-Nyanya stretch of the Abuja-Keffi dual road.
Chairman of the traffic management team, Mr Ikharo Attah made the appeal while responding to questions from newsmen, in Abuja.
Attah observed that the traffic build up on the busy road was largely caused by the potholes, especially from kugbo to Karu bridge.
He also called on the ministry to prevail on the contractor handling the road expansion work to fix the potholes on the road to ease difficulty faced by motorists.
” If you take a careful look at the situation the traffic build up on the road is caused by the potholes…For now, the Federal Road Maintenance Agency (FERMA), as we were told, cannot work on the failed portions because of expansion …It is according to standard construction practice that the contractor fix the bad portions on the current carriageway in use.’ Attah said
He said the potholes slowdown movement and builds traffic, up to Abacha Barracks and sometimes to A. Y. A in Asokoro District after close of work.
Attah, also appealed to motorists to desist from driving on the road shoulders.
