Anambra State govt adopts new technology for road construction



THE government of Anambra State is currently experimenting with a new technology that will lead to the construction of longer-lasting roads in the state.

Speaking at a demonstration of the use of the technology on the short road linking the state secretariat complex to Alex Ekwueme Square in Awka on Thursday, the Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano revealed that the new technology is expected to boost his administration’s effort to find a lasting solution to the challenge of building roads that would stand the test of time in the state.

“We just want to experiment with this short and busy road and see how it can withstand heavy traffic before we can begin to adopt it for internal roads within the urban and non-urban areas,”

Obiano explained that after the experiment, the road would be placed under close observation for six months to see whether it would withstand heavy traffic.

“And if we eventually are convinced that such is the case, then we will begin to apply the technology in the construction of roads in the hinterland and other areas,” he assured.

Offering further insight into the experiment, Mr. Telforn Soden, the engineer representing West Incorporate; owners of the technology, explained that the product was a road stabilizer, which had been in use in many parts of the world.
