The Minister of Works, David Umahi, has revealed that hsi ministry is ready to construct a flyover as a means of solving the flooding affecting the Abuja-Lokoja highway.
Umahi revealed the development during the inspection of the ongoing construction works on the Abuja-Lokoja road.
“We have seen the area that always gets flooded at the Koton Karfe section, and the only solution to it is to do a flyover on it to fly above the flood level,” Umahi added.
“That will really work because it is about 1.6 kilometres which will take five flyovers, you know, multiplied by two.
“So we are going to be making a proposal and submit it to Mr President to give us his nod because we are looking for permanent solutions to our problems,” he noted.
