Federal Road Maintenance Agency (FERMA) has commenced rehabilitation work on the road linking Kanke, Langtang and Wase local government areas in Plateau State following the resolution of the House of Representatives mandating the agency to as a matter of urgency rehabilitate the road.
Recall that the House resolution followed a motion of public importance moved by Honourable Beni Lar on the floor of the House of Representatives, entitled: “Need to Rehabilitate the Collapsed Kanke-Langtang Road”. While moving the motion, Hon. Lar recalled that road was constructed in 1979 has since collapsed and regretted it is now a death trap even as statistics obtained from the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), indicated that between 2015 and 2016 alone 12,077 road accidents were recorded on the road which led to the deaths of 5,400 persons while statistics from the Nigeria Bureau of Statistics indicated that there were 11,363 road crashes on the road and 5,053 deaths were recorded in 2017. A visit to the road, indicated that FERMA through direct labour have started working from Amper and advancing towards Langtang North down to Wase. However, some motorists plying the road appreciated Honourable Lar for securing the approval for the rehabilitation of the road which has claimed many lives due to the bad condition of the road and appealed to FERMA to thoroughly rehabilitate the road to reduce the number road accidents on the road.
