The Aboh Mbaise born strategist and planner stressed that the roads rehabilitation and construction, is a land- mark achievement which would encourage productivity, ensure free movement.
He said he made an in-dept study and highlighted the major causes of transportation problems in Owerri Urban with some recommended solutions to alleviate these problems.
Having audience with newsmen after the Paper Presentation at the Conference, Emereuwa highlighted that “apart from the information gotten from the Primary Data Sources, Owerri Twin City Master- Plan was also studied at which recommendation was made for the implementation of the proposed roads in the Master- Plan especially the Middle and External Tangent Roads meant to circumvent traffic that has no business with Owerri City Center”.
He added that “from the Owerri Twin City Master -Plan, I was able to identify other proposed means of transportation other than Road Transport”, saying “public transportation ought to be made robust and accessible through multi- modal shared mobility so that people can choose it from all their community needs, be it official travel, travel for daily needs or leisure travel”.
Emereuwa, who prayed that God strengthens and directs Governor Emeka Ihedioha to continue to lift the State positively, reflected that personal ideas and contributions were also made by him to ensure traffic safety, convenience, conformity, compatibility and healthy environment in and around Owerri City.
