VKS Nigeria Construction Limited has assured that they are on track to complete the construction of Odio- Nditia Road in Eket and also the Secretariat Road in Abat awarded to the company.
According to the human resource manager of the company, Mr Ndiana Isong, in a statement issued to newsmen on Monday, he noted that VKS equipment and workers were currently on site working on the said projects.
This came on the heels of reports making the rounds that the company was delaying in handling the construction of the Odio- Nditia Road in Eket and also the Secretariat Road in Abat.
The statement by the company notes, "We have a commitment to deliver the road projects and we will deliver as promised.
The construction company explained that the short delay experienced was as a result of negotiation with the community for right of way, compensation for structures marked for demolition.
VKS said despite the task on their part, the company was on track to deliver.
The company noted that the people of the community were part of the manpower working on the project, hence they did not have issues with the community.
VKS mentioned the construction of 12,742Km Awa Iman-Asong-Ikot Edim-Ikot Emem Road with two bridges in ONNA and Mkpat Enin local government areas, and also the dualization of one kilometre Awa Ikot Nkan Road with outfall drains in ONNA Local Government Area as some of the construction works to their credit.
The statement adds, "We have delivered several other projects within the state with top quality without any issue. The Odio and Abat Road projects will be delivered also as agreed in our contract terms.
"We don't believe in talking too much, especially on construction work. We allow our jobs do the talking.
