The Kwara State Government has said all things being equal” the Tunde Idiagbon Flyover called tanke bridge will be completed and delivered by the end of March this year.
Taking reporters on a tour of the iconic project in Ilorin, the state capital, Commissioner for Works Honorable Suleiman Rotimi Iliasu said high quality is the number one consideration as it ramps up work on the Tanke Flyover in Ilorin. He said the government was unable to complete the project last January as promised because it was the festive period, when people had to travel, adding that the contractor also sought more time to be able to deliver a quality job.
The Commissioner said a part of the bridge will be opened for vehicular use very soon, explaining that his Ministry and the consultant in charge are on top of the game to make sure this is achieved for temporary use. He put the level of work so far done at 82 percent, with an assurance to hand over to Kwarans a project that will stand the test of time and be a pride of the people.
Royal Times reports that Kwara residents have lamented the delay in the project, saying the project should have been completed as promised by the government.
