Work continues steadily at the construction site of the British-American Flyover and Dualisation to Lamingo Roundabout Junction as the management and staff of the construction company Craneburg Construction Ltd, have shown uncommon determination to keep to the dateline of delivering the project.
Recall that some months ago, some of the staff raised concerns over welfare matters and threatened to down tools which led to immediate intervention of His Excellency Governor Simon Bako Lalong who directed the Commissioner for Works, Pam Bot-Mang to ensure that the matters are addressed.
Following that intervention, the workers put behind them the setback and continued work with commitment and vigour.
Today, the workers are full of joy that most of their concerns have been addressed and the project is going on as planned.
Most of the pillars have been erected while the cross beams are being cast and will soon be ready for mounting.
The accompanying bridges have also attained significant progress.
Governor Simon Lalong who paid an unscheduled visit to the project site on 2nd June 2022, expressed delight on the progress so far and urged the contractors to sustain the level of work which he observed was done with high quality and at a good pace.
He was assured by the Commissioner for Works, Pam Bot-Mang and the site Engineer Mr. Dani that the project will be done according to plans and delivered on schedule, all things being equal.
Also, the relocation and reconnection of water pipes and power lines have substantially been completed and water and light are being gradually restored to affected communities.
Recently when the Governor inspected the Polo roundabout where a fuel tanker crashed and resulted in huge damage to property around the area, the Governor said the permanent solution to the incessant accidents along the Polo roundabout was the completion of the British-American Flyover which will provide alternative route for heavy duty trucks passing through the city.
We continue to appreciate and commend residents and motorists affected by the construction directly or indirectly, for their patience, support and understanding thus far as we continue to THINK PLATEAU and ACT PLATEAU!!
