The shared prosperity administration of Distinguished Sen. Hope Uzodimma has commenced installation of street lights on the 37km dual carriage Owerri/Orlu road even as the reconstruction of road is just nearing completion.
The lighting project which is done in good faith to prevent road crashes, armed robberies and other criminal activities especially at nights along the road, have been applauded by residents and will be completed in the coming weeks.
Recall that a week ago, His Exellency, Dist. Sen. Hope Uzodimma announced that President Muhammadu Buhari had granted his request to commission the Owerri-Orlu and Owerri-Okigwe roads in May, 2022 while expressing optimism that the federal government would be moved to compensate the Imo government for embarking on the projects.
However, the contractors handling the project, Craneburg, had given assurance that they would be ready by next month, having achieved 90 per cent completion.
