The commendation for the company’s qualitative works came again from the Hon. Minister of Works, Engr. Dave Umahi during his inspection visit to the on-going and fast moving Bodo-Bonny Road project linking the Rivers state mainland to Bonny Island.

Umahi who also factually acknowledged Julius Berger’s strong commitment to good engineering construction quality during his inspection visit to the Abuja-Kano Road project a few weeks ago, said, “… “Once again I can tell you, Julius Berger remains consistent in delivering topnotch quality, and is doing a great work here in the Bodo-Bonny Road project.“

The visibly professionally passionate Engr. David Umahi and the Julius Berger project management experts, however, mutually analysed and some technical ideas on the project‘s ‘design ideology‘ for greater sustainability of the project to the admiration of the appreciative audience.

Significantly, the Minister also noted that “If you pay them (Julius Berger), they will be fast with the job as you can see that they have done in the Bodo-Bonny Road project”.

The visit started with the minister addressing the project consultants where he emphasised the government’s desire for new roads to be constructed in concrete.

The leader of the Julius Berger delegation that received the Minister, Engr. Thomas Balzuweit explained that currently the Bodo-Bonny road is planned as an asphalt road, except the last 6 Km on Bonny Island due to extremely challenging soil conditions and expected long-term settlements of up to 30cm over a period of 30 years.
