FG approves N2.2bn for FCT roads, water

The Federal Executive Council (FEC) has approved the sum of N2.2 billion for the reconstruction and rehabilitation of the Bill Clinton Airport Drive as well as for the procurement of field materials for the FCT Water Board. 

Bill Clinton Drive, the spur road directly linking the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Road with the Umaru Musa Yar’Adua Expressway is a major gateway to both the city and the country. 
In his presentation, the FCT Mini ster, Malam Muhammad Musa Bello noted that the road, which was constructed in the early 80s  and has since exceeded its lifespan of 20 years is currently in serious need of rehabilitation. 

The scope of work includes removal of existing bitumen and pavements as well as carrying out asphalting, resurfacing shoulder dressing and drainage.

The Bill Clinton Drive rehabilitation project is coming on the heels of the recent conclusion of works on the Bill Clinton Interchange and bridge last year. The completion which brought about a new lease of life for motorists on that road was in keeping with the commitment of this administration to completing all ongoing critical infrastructure projects. 

In the same vein, the FEC also approved FCTA’s request for N273 Million for the provision of field materials for the delivery of quality potable drinking water for FCT residents.
