-HiTech making gradual return to abandoned Ipakodo – Igbogbo Road
The contractor handling the reconstruction of the Igbogbo Stadium, has returned to the site about two weeks ago, with the construction work that was previously abandoned over a year ago, progressing.
In the same vein, HiTech Construction Limited, the construction giant handling the reconstruction of the Ipakodo – Igbogbo – Bola Ahmed Tinubu (formerly Agbele Road) – Igbe Laara – Gintin road phase one, has also been making gradual return to site, almost a year after the work was abandoned.
There have been protests and agitations by the youths, those in the sports circle and other concerned residents of Igbogbo and Ikorodu Division, in general, while the traditional institution and political class have also intervened in ensuring that the stadium and road projects are completed.
Our reporter, who has been monitoring the return to site of the contractor handling the stadium, since the beginning of August, was at the site during the week to see the progress of the construction work.
It was noticed that a narrow drainage system has been constructed through the facility to carve out the football pitch. There is also stabilization of the ground.
Aside from the football pitch, places where other sporting facilities would be constructed, have also been demarcated with ropes, while work was also going on the stadium’s pavilion.
Attempts by our reporter to speak with the site engineer, was unsuccessful as he was informed that the engineer just stepped out of the site, a few minutes before our reporter’s arrival.
Meanwhile, there has been movement of construction machines back to the Hitech main yard at Mangoro area of Igbogbo, just after Oreyo, a situation that signifies that work may restart soon.
THE IMPACT had, on August 2, reported that HiTech would be coming back to site soon.
Residents that spoke with THE IMPACT, confirmed that HiTech brought excavator and other construction equipment into its yard on Wednesday.
