The Governor disclosed that the initial contractor handling the Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) project was the one engaged in the reconstruction work. “This is a very busy road and so many factors were put into considerations for us to have a road that will withstand the load, traffic, so, it was redesigned for us to have three lanes on both side,” the governor said.
He assured the people of Warri and Effurun metropolis of his administration’s commitment to develop the area, stating that more link roads would be constructed.
