KADUNA UPDATE: In response to many inquiries by the citizens of our State, we provide below a quick update of the situation and plans regarding some key state and Federal Roads requiring urgent attention:
(1) Nnamdi Azikiwe Expressway (Western Bye-Pass): We are waiting for the rainy season to end to begin its reconstruction into dual lane reinforced concrete road that will last much longer than asphalt. Reconstruction is being done by Dangote Group under FIRS Tax Credit scheme.
(2) Birnin Gwari-Funtua-Dansadau Road: This is also being reconstructed into a reinforced concrete highway under the #FIRS Tax Credit Scheme by the Dangote Group. Reconstruction will start as soon as the rains stop.
(3) Old Kaduna-Lagos Road to Birnin Gwari LG Boundary (about 100km): This is also being reconstructed into a reinforced concrete highway under the #FIRS Tax Credit Scheme by the Dangote Group. Reconstruction will start as soon as the rains stop.
(4) Kaduna-Jos Road: The rehabilitations, reconstruction and dualization of this federal road has been included in the 2019 and 2020 Federal Government Budgets. KDSG is closely following up with the Minister of Works and Housing to ensure works begin as soon as possible.
Thank you all and God Bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
