Dangote road: AG-Dangote Construction Limited, a joint venture company between Andrade Gutierrez (AG) of Brazil and Dangote Group Nigeria, has commissioned the longest stretch of concrete road, in the country recently. The 24km cement concrete road links Obese and itori in Ogun State.
Dangote explained that his decision to start the campaign for concrete road in Nigeria, is in line with what obtains in other parts of the world.
For instance, the Autobahn in Germany, was constructed with concrete…
the famous Accra-Tema concrete road was possibly the first of its type in Africa.
The equally popular Marine Drive in Mumbai, India, which was built in 1939, is another example of a concrete road.
The Mumbai road is today still performing satisfactorily after almost 80 years in operation.
As a matter of fact, it is expected that Mumbai saves about $3million in maintenance cost every year from the investment in the construction of 450km of concrete roads.
The Federal Governent has commended the business ingenuity of the Africa’s foremost entrepreneur, Aliko Dangote saying the acumen won him the contract for the construction of the novel concrete paved Obajana-Kabba road in Kogi State due for completion in 24 months
