Following the release of funds by Kwara State Governor, Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed for the repair of the collapsed Moro Bridge on llorin-lgbeti highway, has begun.
 
The State Commissioner for Works and Transport, Alhaji Aro Yayaha who made this known in Ilorin, noted that work has commenced as the steel and other materials purchased for the repair have been received.
 
He also disclosed that the State government had earlier in March this year intervened on the Ohan-bailey Bridge, also in Moro Local Government of the State.
 
The commissioner explained that although the two bridges are FG facilities, the State Government decided to carry out intervention work on them in order to ease the hardship faced by road users and motorists.
 
While commending the Federal Government for its interventions on various roads within the State, Alhaji Yayaha urged the FG to reconstruct the two bridges as it is the lasting solution to prevent the bridges from collapsing in the nearest future.
 
He added that the reconstruction of the bridges will further boost the agricultural activities in the area and the state in general, particularly in easing the transportation of farm produce to commercial destinations.
 
Alhaji Yahaya, therefore, urged commuters plying the bridges to be patient as the repair will be completed in no time.
