The Ganduje led Kano State Government has awarded contract worth N15.28 billion for the construction of a flyover from Kofar Mata – Murtala Muhammed way in the state capital.
The project stretches over an estimated 2.5 kilometres.
The state Commissioner for Works, Housing and Transport, Engr. Aminu Aliyu signed the contract on behalf of the state government while Mr. Lin Zhengliang signed for the constructing company, TEC Engineering Ltd. Mr. Ye Congjun, representative of TEC Engineering headquarters, China witnessed the signing formalities.
“The project was specifically conceived by the Ganduje administration for high-speed vehicular traffic, with all traffic flow and ingress/egress regulated to ensure commuter safety”, Engr. Aminu Wudil explained.
“As you are aware, Flyovers have become a vital part of mega cities like Kano, as a result of rapid urban development. Kano is an emerging mega – city which implies that you have to constantly upgrade and provide new infrastructure like roads, flyovers and underpasses to meet the demands of the teeming population”, he pointed out.
Engr. Aminu pointed out that with the new flyover, commuters will find movement into the old Kano city faster with reduced travel times and leading to less carbon emissions from exhaust fumes in hold-ups along the ever-busy road.
“We are going to witness an innovative project that will add value to the landscape of the state capital. It will be completed within a time frame of 24 months”, the commissioner added.
On his part, Mr. Lin Zhengliang of TEC Engineering promised to complete the project within the stipulated time and according to agreed specifications as demonstrated in two projects done for the state government by the company, namely, Kofar Nassarawa flyover and the yet to be commissioned Murtala Muhammad way flyover.
