The Kwara State Government, on Thursday, said the Tanke flyover is 99% ready and will be opened very soon.

The State Commissioner for Works, Hon Abdulqowiyu Olododo, stated this during a facility tour of the bridge and other road projects in some parts of the metropolis.

He said, “A few weeks back, when I was here, I said the project would be delivered by the first quarter of 2024. With what we have seen here, we can say that it is 99 percent completed because what is left are just road marking, painting of the walkways and Kerbs, which do not disturb the free flow of traffic.”

“Two weeks back, we were here with the team of COREN (Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria) to ascertain the work we have done. Prior to their visit to the bridge, we held several meetings where they also verified the result of what we had done on the bridge, and they certified all the results.

“So, at the end of their visit to the bridge, they also certified that it was good to go. And more so, with the final work that we did on this bridge, we have seen a number of heavy-duty trucks that have been plying it. That goes to show you that the bridge is suitable for public use.”

Olododo also spoke on the drainage system at Adeta/Oloje road project, saying: “What we are doing is part of the runoff from Adeta drainage, which is going to Adeta-Pakata Roundabout. Currently, the drainage we have at Adeta-Pakata Roundabout is about 0.6 meters, which we are expanding to 1meter, to be able to accommodate the large volume of water that will be coming from Adeta junction. And the one at Oloje, too will also be taken care of to avoid flooding.”
