The Federal Road Safety Commission, FRSC, Anambra State Command, has said the partial closure to traffic of the Enugu-Onitsha Expressway through Amawbia flyover is to enable the construction company handling maintenance project at the site to lay the final asphalt layer on that stretch.
A statement signed by the Command’s Public Education Officer, Florence Edor, on behalf of the Sector Commander, Mr. Adeoye Irelewuyi, advised motorists to use alternative routes, including the old road, in order to relieve vehicular pressure. He assured motorists and all those traversing the flyover of adequate deployment of traffic managers, and appealed to motorists to cooperate with them for free traffic flow.
The statement added that the Federal Ministry of Works, which is supervising the project, had assured of speedy completion so as to minimize the inconveniences that might be caused, and urged the motoring public to be safety conscious when approaching the flyover.
