FG to Shut Down a Section of Apapa Road for a Year


A section of the Apapa Wharf will be shut down for a year to allow the construction of the ever busy road, to resolve the traffic challenges usually encountered on the road, says Fashola.

This information was given by the Minister of Works, Babatunde Fashola, at the official signing of Memorandum of Understanding and handing over of the project to the sponsors.


The N4.34bn project, jointly sponsored by Dangote, Flour Mills companies and Federal Government, is expect to last for a year starting from Saturday.

The two kilometres road construction will take place between the Nigerian Port Authority and end of the bridge.

Fashola explained that the use of AG Dangote for the construction was to give the road a better outlook with the use of concrete.


While commending the sponsors of the project, the minister appealed to road users and stakeholders to persevere.

He said, “We are embarking on what will be the final solution to the massive inconvenience. Businesses and residents in Apapa and its environment have had to endure for a couple of years.”
