Just like the Biblical phrase that says, "When the Lord turn again the captivity of Zion, we are like those that dream". The same can be said of Apapa-Wharf Road. For the first time after a long time will a driver drive from Apapa Ports in Wharf and get to CMS in less than 20mins.

It was earlier reported that the Wharf-Apapa road is a death trap for all road users. This road serves as the gateway road to the Nation's Seaport and it hosts several industries like Dangote, Flour Mills of Nigeria, Leventis and a host of others.

Last year the companies spearheaded by Dangote, Flour Mills, and other industries signed an MOU with the Federal Government to reconstruct the roads while the government gives them a tax holiday.

AutoReportNG was in Apapa last April to access works being done where we give first-hand reportage from the site. Fast forward to September, we start seeing some pictures of a new Apapa-Wharf Road and we felt as a responsible media outlet to see things for ourselves.

Base on our reports, we noticed that the four-kilometer dual carriageway, built with cement, has a median, walkways and side barriers on the various sections painted in black and white. Big drainage on both sides has also been completed while street lights have also been erected on Sections one and four of the project.

Interlocking stones are still being laid on about three-quarter of the service lane of out-bound Apapa dual carriageway. Section one of the project is 520 meters, section two is 450 meters, three is 380 while section four is 650 meters.

We can report that the road is 85% completed with some minor adjustments still ongoing at some various points but so far, its a new dawn on this road.

The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, had on June 17, 2017 signed a N4.34 billion Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with AG Dangote Construction Company Ltd and some other stakeholders for reconstructing the Apapa-Wharf Road.

The project is being funded by AG Dangote Construction Company Ltd, the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) and Flour Mills of Nigeria Plc.

These are some visuals from our trip.

Nice.
This road was an impassable disaster under PDP with no plans to fix it. Please let the tankers not turn it to another parking lot after commissioning.

Slowly and steadily, we'll rebuild our country.
Gradually, one road, one rail, one power plant, one airport, one block of housing, one inland port, etc. will be completed and put to use for the benefit of Nigerians.

Our developed Nigeria will become the hub of industries in Africa, such that Nigerians will no longer see the need to travel out for greener pastures.

God bless Nigeria.

Is it until the govt awards a contract?
The govt is paying for the road in form of some tax holiday for Dangote, Flour Mills and others involved. FG mustn't pay cash upfront.

For once, lemme say thank you to the present administration for thinking outside the box to allow Dangote build this road.


It's maintenance should also be a top priority for successive government.


God bless Nigeria.

You spoken my mind, during the inspection, we noticed the concrete are very thick, strong, this is due to the heavy duty trucks always passing the roads

Private sector participant is always good for a country like Nigeria to attain faster development. The Ota/Ayobo in Ogun axis should be given to Winners Chapel too to fix permanently.

PDP, for 16 years, never deemed it fit to cooperate with Dangote and other companies to fix this road.

God bless PMB/PYO.
God bless Fasola
God bless Dangote
God bless Nigeria.

Dangote created this deal for his well being, he was losing too many trucks to bad roads. All Industry executives should do this.
