Fashola Says Abuja-Algiers Road To Be Completed In 3yrs by Asnafsaeed(m): 2:52am On Nov 13, 2019
Mr Babatunde Fashola, Minister of Works and Housing says the trans-saharan roads linking Abuja with Algiers in Algeria will be completed in three years.

Fashola said this during a joint inspection visit to the on-going Abuja-Keffi-Akwanga-Lafia-Markudi and the Abuja-Kaduna roads which are part of the trans-saharan roads.

The inspection was part of the programme schedule for a 2-day 70th Session of the Trans Sahara Road Liaison Committee (TRLC) which began on Nov. 11 in Abuja.

He said: “ What we are concerned with in this committee is the Lagos to Algiers highway.

“The Lagos-Ibadan-Oyo road, the Jebba-Mokwa-Kaduna-Kano road, and the Abuja-Kano road are the major components.

“`So Mali is doing its own, Algeria is doing its own, Niger is doing its own. Every country is handling their own.

“The Abuja-Kaduna-Zaria-Kano Dual Carriageway of 375.9km has three sections and would all be completed within three years,’’ Fashola said.

He added that part of the project which is handled by China Harbour Engineering Compay Limited (CHEC) is the expansion of 5.4km of the Abuja-Keffi Expressway and Dualisation of the Keffi-Akwanga-Lafia-Makurdi road.

The project is located in FCT, Nasarawa and Benue states, with a total length of 227.2km, including the Abuja-Keffi and Keffi-Makurdi sections.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the 5.4km Abuja-Keffi section will have two-lane auxiliary roads on both sides of the existing six-lane section.

The 221.8km Keffi-Makurdi section will see an expansion of the existing two-way two-lane section to a two-way four-lane section.

According to Fashola, the main works to be done in the execution of the project include sub-grade, bridge, and culvert, as well as drainage and pavement.

He added that the road would have an electromechanical toll station that would be completed in March 2022.

The Secretary-General of the TRLC, Mr Ayadi Mohammed, said that the inspection of the project provided a good opportunity for the committee members to evaluate the state of the construction of the roads.

According to him, the work the committee members have seen so far is technically sound.

NAN further reports that the roads are expected to serve 37 regions in Africa and connect 74 urban centres as well as 60 million people across the six countries that are members of the committee.

On the local front, the road will pass through Lagos and Ibadan, to Ilorin, Jeba, Kaduna and to Kano where Nigeria shares border with the Republic of Niger.

The committee session holds every four years.

The trans-Saharan road liaison committe is made up of six countries, namely: Nigeria, Niger, Chad, Tunisia, Algeria, and Mali.

The committee was formed in 1966 to establish a road link across the six countries to encourage growth, socio-economic activities, development, cooperation, and trade.

This timeframe Doesn't sound too realistic for me. Sounds like another Failed 5days Ultimatum issue to the Telecom operators to reduce their Data charges

Fashola, for all i know has always been wrong in his forecast. I don't know why the hasty forecast all the time. grin Maybe he is one man who wants this country to grow as quickly as possible in his subconsciousness but lacks the power to do so due to limited opportunity. grin Maybe he should be giving the chance to rule this country if he keeps putting the cat before the horse

FIX the many bad Nigerian roads first.
angry

I wonder how south Easterners will travel this Christmas. Between Otukpa (Benue State) and OboloAfor(Enugu) is so bad that trailers have taken over n You can stay stationary for hours.

9th Mile to Awka is bad.

Between Ajaokuta, just after Geregu Power PLC to Niger bridge is bad (Kogi).

Okene-Obajana-Asaba road is bad.

Lagos-Ibadan expressway is bad.

East-West Road (Warri to PH) is bad.

The only State in the South East with good road is Ebonyi. I saw for myself and agree that Dave Umahi has transformed Ebonyi.
If you see the concrete road that won't go bad anytime soon from Ohazzara (EZza axis) to boundary with Nenwe (Aninri LGA of Enugu State) and other bridges, mansion-like secondary schools, modern markets, flyovers and so on, you will be amazed. I ask, is it not the same allocation other Governors get that Dave Umahi is getting, yet doing wonders?

The federal Road from Biase to Calabar is Bad.We wonder how tourists will fare plying that road to attend Calabar Carnival this year. Well, they may sand fill it soon (temporary measure) cos in naija, anything is possible.

Calabar to Ikom through Obubra to Obudu/Ogoja is bad.

The federal road, from Awka to Umunze is bad.

The Federal Road between Onitsha (Awada) to Mgbidi is bad (some sections).

Owerri-Orlu Road is bad.

Enugu-Umuahia is bad and Aba--PH section is a no go area. Travelers have to pass through Owerri instead of driving a shorter Enugu-PH.

Orlu- Ihiala road is bad (section from Banana junction, Orlu to Total filling station, Ihiala).

Owerri to Imo Gate (boundary with Abia) is bad.

And other roads so numerous to mention.


After traversing many States in Nigeria, I concluded that roads in Northern Nigeria is better.
