First flyover in Katsina State, commissioned by Masari, gulped N6.4 billion 

The fyover is meant to ease traffic congestion in the area thereby facilitating free vehicular movements.

The construction of the interchange bridge project, located at the Central Roundabout of the Government Reserve Area, commenced in May last year and is one of the three multi-billion-naira road projects in the state capital initiated and awarded by the Governor Masari-led administration.

The project is designed to ease traffic.

Speaking during the ceremony, Masari said the interchange bridge contracts were awarded as part of efforts to reduce congestion and ease vehicular movement.

He explained that the construction of the Kofar Kwaya and Kofar Kaura underpass bridges was awarded at the cost of N2.8bn and N2.9bn respectively.

According to him, they were 100 percent completed and commissioned in January this year by President Muhammadu Buhari.

He recalled that the GRA Roundabout project was awarded in the 2022 financial year at the cost of N4.3bn which he said was later revised to the sum of N6.4bn due to additional works and compensation for structures affected by the project.
