The Section One of the ongoing Mike Adenuga -Apapa (formerly Wharf) Road project value N4.34bn undergoing reconstruction is completed and will be opened to traffic on Thursday, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
A very senior engineer from AG Dangote Construction Company Ltd., involved in handling the project confirmed this to NAN on Wednesday in Lagos.
The engineer said that the section had been completed and was being “cleaned to be opened to traffic tomorrow.
“Section One is completed and will be opened to traffic tomorrow. This job is a very careful project and a lot of work has gone into it.
Amehnews recall that SAN Babatunde Fashola, the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, had on June 17, 2017, signed a N4.34 billion Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with AG Dangote Construction Company Ltd., and other stakeholders for the reconstruction of the four-kilometer Apapa-Mike Adenuga Road.
The road was however closed to traffic to allow for construction on July 7, 2017, after deliberations with various stakeholders.
The project is being funded by AG Dangote Construction Company Ltd., the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) and Flour Mills of Nigeria.
The engineer, however, noted that the challenges on the project were “still the same, that of utility relocation on the Right of Way (RoW)”.
Work on the two kilometres of the project under construction had been divided into four sections.
