The Anambra State Government has commenced the dredging of flood channels on the Nise- Amawbia road as part measures to reduce flooding in the area, which has cut off some communities in the area.
The development followed consistent downpour in the past four days with some houses already flooded and their occupants had to relocate to safe places.
This led to the decision of the state government to the dredge the adjourning canal in the area.
Governor Willie Obiano, who visited the area, expressed satisfaction at the level of work already done at the canal by the contractors.
Obiano said the state government had awarded a contract for refurbishing of the road, adding that it would demolish the existing bridge to construct a new one that could stand the test of time.
Mr Jacob Enaini, the project manager of the construction firm, said the main work would commence after the rains, explaining that the company had already been mobilized by the state government.
He explained that about 2.5 metres of the canal had already been dredged, assuring the governor that the work would be completed on schedule.
