The Bayelsa state government under the leadership of Governor Duoye Diri has informed the general public and particularly the dwellers and commuters of Yenogoa, the Bayelsa state capital, of its plan to commence the needed expansion project of the Etegwe/Edepie roundabout in the city.
In a short letter signed by the Acting Chief Press Secretary to the Bayelsa state governor, Daniel Alabrah, the government also enjoined the general populace to cooperate with the construction officials as they carry on their job.
The letter reads:
“The Bayelsa State Government wishes to inform residents and commuters within Yenagoa that the expansion project of the Etegwe/Edepie roundabout will commence on Friday, June 26, 2020 as part of the urban renewal programme of the Governor Douye Diri administration.”
“The state government is aware that the road construction and roundabout expansion project at the Etegwe/Edepie axis would result in traffic gridlock in that axis. So, in order to ease the pains of commuters, the government hereby advises vehicle owners and tricycle (keke) riders to take note of the traffic diversion along and towards the following routes:”
“Firstly, Vehicles and tricycles heading toward the Etegwe/Edepie roundabout along the Isaac Boro Expressway would divert at NIIT Road to link Imiringi Road and connect the Yenagoa/Mbiama Road via Ruthmour Street and Tinacious Street at Edepie”
“Secondly, for vehicles and tricycles heading toward Yenagoa along the Yenagoa/Mbiama Road, there will be no entry at the Edepie/Etegwe roundabout. Instead, they head straight along the Yenagoa/Mbiama Road or divert at the Tamic Road in Okutukutu if they wish to link the Isaac Boro Expressway.”
“Also, the government also informs residents and car owners on NIIT Road in Etegwe that parking of vehicles along that road would not be permitted during the period of the construction work. Violators of this directive would have their cars impounded by the relevant organs of the state government.”
“Finally, the government wishes to solicit the cooperation of residents of the state capital as well as visitors in its determination to give the state capital a befitting facelift.”
