The House of Representatives on Wednesday urged the Federal Government to commence expansion work on all auxiliary routes into the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
This came following a motion moved by Rep. Gaza Gbwefi (Nasarawa-PDP) on the need to address incessant gridlock on Karu/Nyanya/Mararaba road.
Gbwefi, representing Karu/Keffi/Kokona Federal Constituency of Nasarawa state, expressed concern on the constant traffic gridlock being experienced by motorists and commuters along the Karu/Nyanya/Mararaba axis.
He said that the gridlock had often times resulted in avoidable accidents and a major occurrence with resultant toll on the populace living in the axis.
According to him, a large proportion of the labour force that service the manpower needs of the FCT residing on the axis had been greatly affected by the gridlock.
The motion was adopted unanimously and the House called on the FCTA as well as Nasarawa State Government to relocate the night market along the road and also provide car parks and bus stops to ease traffic.
