While this year’s rainy season is about to fully “unleash”, the government of Ogun state has taken swift action by ordering the immediate commencement of repair works on the popular Panseke-Adigbe road with a major focus on its drainage system.
This road had earlier made headlines on various media outlets with reports that its asphalt had been washed off by just a little rain that has fallen so far.
Ogun State government begins repair of Panseke-Adigbe road and its drainages
According to the latest reports, the government of Ogun state says it’s currently looking at all possibilities of providing the most durable drainage system by resuming construction works on the popular Panseke-Adigbe road all through Opako bridge along the well-known Obada road in Abeokuta. This move by the government is targeted at permanently stopping the recurring dilapidation of the protective walls on the busy Opako bridge which is usually caused by its bad drainage system.
Sources claim that the Panseke-Adigbe road project was initially contracted out by the previous government of Ogun state before it was later abandoned following the change in government. This is the more reason why the current administration under Governor Dapo Abiodun has decided to swing into action by joining heads with expert contractors to begin the immediate extension of all drainages attached to the popular bridge before this year’s rainy season arrives fully. New press reports claim that engineers have begun working on the road and the bridge since Saturday 11th of July, 2020 to put it in a proper state as soon as possible.
And speaking of repairs of roads in Ogun state, just last month a press report revealed that residents of Arepo community at the outskirt of the state had to join hands in repairing a 1.7km road by themselves. Below is the press video confirming this report;
