(DrainageNews) …plans comprehensive drainage system for PH - The Tide

The Rivers State Government says it plans a comprehensive drainage system in Port Harcourt to check the perennial flooding in the city. The works commissioner specifically cited Mgbuoba as one of the areas that has been submerged by flood occasioned by reckless building on the natural waterways, and advised those concerned to remove the structures before government demolition team visits the area. The commissioner explained that his ministry has undertaken repair works on some bad portions of roads in Port Harcourt and its environs categorized under roads requiring urgent rehabilitation while some others that need total reconstruction would be done as the dry season sets in. According to him, another major road project earmarked for the state is the ring road that would provide relative permanent solution to traffic congestion, noting that adequate measures have been taken to ensure proper supervision of road projects. Omah remarked that the state government was aware of quacks and has taken steps to ensure that only competent contractors are used in executing its projects while ministry engineers are to undertake proper supervision. He highlighted that the SHIRE Contract agenda of the state government was going to enhance radical transformation of the state, adding that the present administration was poised to give Rivers people unparallel leadership. read me
