The Minister for Works, David Umahi, has announced that the rehabilitation and palliative work on all failed federal roads will commence on December 1, 2023.
Umahi reeled out plans for actualizing a sustainable road infrastructure throughout the country.
In a personal statement posted on his X account on Monday, the minister said his response was based on the complaints by commuters and residents on dilapidated federal roads.
The roads include, the Makurdi-Nsukka 9th Mile Road, East-West Road, Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway, Benin bypass road, collapsed bridges of Enugu- Port Harcourt road, collapsed bridges of Shandam-Plateau State, Abuja-Kaduna- Zaria-Kano road and Gombe- Bauchi among others.
He promised to tackle road infrastructure issues head-on, not minding the heavy volume of debt burden inherited from most of the ongoing road projects.
