RIVERS State has approved a new flyover, measuring 505 metres, at the GRA junction on Port Harcourt/Aba Expressway.
Commissioner for Works Austin Ben-Chioma, who spoke in Port Harcourt on Thursday, said the approval was given during the State Executive Council (SEC) meeting, chaired by Governor Nyesom Wike.
Ben-Chioma added that the council also approved dualisation of Ezimbu Link road connecting Stadium from GRA junction, and Tombia extension linking Ikwerre road.
He noted that the council okayed expansion of the Rumuola flyover to four lanes to ease traffic congestion and boost economic activities.
“To ensure that motorists do not suffer during the constructions, the government will create alternative routes,” he said.
