Ebonyi State Governor yesterday made history being the first to test runs First Ebonyi Trans-Sahara Highway, called Akanu Ibiam flyover.

Speaking at the event, Governor Umahi noted that the state would by next year embark on the construction of another flyover at Nkalagu Junction to reduce the spate of accidents at the spot.

Residents say before now, Akanu Ibiam Junction which situates at the heart of Abakaliki by Trans- Sahara International Highway and formerly known as Spera In Deo Junction used to be a nightmare for not only motorists but residents of the state.

Further details show that apart from the traffic gridlocks that sometimes occur in the area, it was also a death trap for both pedestrians and motorists with countless road mishaps recorded in the area.

It would be recalled that Chief David Umahi had promised the people of the state during his campaign that he would in addition to beautifying the city, construct a flyover to ease traffic for motorists plying the ever busy Highway.

He noted that the scheme was put in place to making the state capital one of the best in the country.

While commending the Ministry of Works for being steadfast to the developmental dreams of the state government, he assured the people that three more flyovers would be constructed at Nkalagu Junction, Vanco and Ebonyi Hotels to ease traffic in the state.
