Following the increasing number of people visiting the new Port Harcourt Pleasure Park along Port Harcourt-Aba Express Road, the Rivers State House of Assembly Committee Chairman on Works, Hon Michael Chinda, has called on the state Ministry of Works to construct a foot bridge to safeguard visitors going for recreation.
Chinda, who represents Obio/Akpor Constituency 1, made the call last Wednesday in an interview with newsmen in Port Harcourt.
He said Port Harcourt-Aba Expressway is a motor way for high speed traffic and that the only prevention against accidents is the immediate construction of pedestrian bridge.
“I have requested the Ministry of Works to urgently construct a pedestrian bridge to safe-guard the lives of those who go there on a daily basis for recreation.
“Port Harcourt-Aba road is a motor way designed for high-speed traffic, so, the only solution there for now is to embark on an immediate construction of a pedestrian bridge”, Chinda explained.
Chinda commended the state Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike for embarking on people-oriented projects, saying that the peace park will boost the state’s internally generated revenue and cheek unemployment and youth restiveness.
