Delta State Government has commenced repairs on the Asaba/Ogwashi-Uku/Kwale/Ughelli road project so as to curb erosion.

Speaking when he led a team comprising the Permanent Secretary, Engr. Dona Umukoro and top ministry’s officials on an inspection visit to the Asaba-Ogwashi-Uku-Kwale Section of the road on Wednesday, the state Commissioner for Works,  Chief James Augoye, explained that gullies created by erosion have caused a lot of damage on the road adding that measures were being put in place to stop further damages on the road.

“The Governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa, is very passionate and concerned about our roads especially this part of the road which has been affected drastically by erosion and he has given the directive for the immediate repairs which will begin today,” he said.

Augoye disclosed that the Direct Labour Agency (DLA) would begin immediate excavation of the erosion damaged portions of the road while the ULO Construction Limited would assist by “putting permanent measures through the construction of drainages which will take care of erosions by directing water from the roads,” he added.

He gave the assurance that the work would be concluded very soon so as to improve vehicular movement during the rainy season.
