“Earthmoving equipment have arrived and work has since commenced on the dualization of the road and the flyover bridge.

“The idea to dualised the road and to build a flyover is for the future of the State because sooner or later the State capital will need a flyover as the city continue to expand with more traffic congestion being witnessed already.

“We want to follow the Jalingo master plan. Today, in Abuja and Lagos, structures are being pulled down with heavy compensation paid by the government to open up roads due to congestion and population increase.
