Nine roads covering 11 kilometres have been completed at N3.7 billion.
The Delta State Commissioner for Works, Funkekeme Solomon, said the government had embarked on 851 projects at N225 billion across the state to improve socio-economic life of the people.
Mr. Solomon announced this in Asaba at the inauguration of some of the projects to mark the 2013 Democracy Day. He said the state government placed emphasis on road infrastructure, adding that nine roads covering 11 kilometres had been completed at N3.7 billion.
