Government plans massive road repairs at Yuletide
The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Raji Fashola has said government was working with contractors handling road projects for the repairs of major arterial road networks in view of the forthcoming Yuletide.
Addressing the contractors in Abuja, Fashola said the meeting was aimed at reviewing the state of on-going reconstruction works on major arterial roads, planning and strategising on how to facilitate the ease of movement during the festival season.He also urged the Corps Marshal of Federal Road Safety Commission, Federal Roads Maintenance Agency (FERMA) and Federal Controllers of Works and Contractors to work together on some defined on-going roads projects across the country.
The Minister said this had become necessary, in view of the demand of the upcoming season for high human and vehicular movements, as well as increased activities of importers and exporters on major roads.In a separate meeting with the Housing Sector Controllers, Fashola charged them to be more committed and productive to ensure all ongoing housing projects are completed by 2020.
