See The On Going Repair Works At Anthony- Oworonshoki Road

Repair works have started at the Anthony- Oworonshoki Road area of Lagos. Anthony is an urban place that has a close road network with Oshodi and Oworonshoki is closer to the dreaded 3rd Mainland Bridge. It will be recalled that the reconstruction of the 32-kilometre Apapa-Oshodi-Oworonshoki-Ojota in Lagos was performed last year by the Minister of Power, Works, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, on behalf of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The reconstruction of the road’s Section 1, Sub-section A, will begin from the Olorogun Michael Ibru Boulevard (former Creek Road) end of Port Novo Bridge and Liverpool road, in Apapa, through Coconut, Beachland Estate interchange bridge, Cele Bus Stop, Anthony Village, to Old Lagos Toll Gate.

The whole length of the road will be paved with reinforced concrete by Dangote Industries Limited at a whopping cost of N73 billion, using the Road Trust Fund policy.

The fund is a form of public, private partnership, conceived to accelerate the provision of federal roads by allowing private sector operators to collectively fund road projects in exchange for tax credit.

“The Road Trust Fund policy gives private sector operators an incentive to fund infrastructure with the government. This is an innovative and laudable scheme, we are putting our money upfront,” said the President of Dangote Group, Alhaji Aliko Dangote.

For those coming from MMIA, you must have noticed some additions to the pavement by HITECH team, well, it seems they are upgrading the road and they are going all the way to Ojota.
