“We have well over 13,000km of federal roads under repair, rehabilitation and reconstruction. There is a road project in every state, there is housing or civil work in every state,” Fashola said.
“We have completed Third Mainland Bridge, we have done Ojuelegba Bridge. We are on Falomo Bridge, Independence Bridge, Chanchangi Bridge, Kotonkafi Bridge, Loko-Oweto Bridge.
Abuja-Nyanya-Keffi Road: Currently we are working on ten lanes, five on each side, a three-lane main carriageway, two-way service lanes on each side. The road goes all the way to Makurdi. 85% of the project is funded by China EXIM,” he added.
In case you missed it
Mr Babatunde Fashola, recently stated that the Federal Government has not forgotten the ongoing Lagos-Badagry Expressway rehabilitation/reconstruction project as it is on the 2021 Sukuk funding priority list.
“If we succeed, Lagos-Badagry Expressway is one of the top roads we are pencilling down for the Sukuk in 2021. If that happens, then the contractor will do his work but I think it is important to help us communicate to the people who use that axis that they are not forgotten,” he said.
