The nation’s leading and most reliable engineering construction company, Julius Berger Nigeria Plc, has been awarded contract by the Lagos State Government for the reconstruction and upgrade of three roads in Lagos Island. As a long-standing infrastructure development partner,it would be recalled that Julius Bergerhas been in Lagos since 1965 when it built the historic, strong and still sturdily standing Eko Bridge.

The new roads awarded to Julius Bergerfor reconstruction and upgrade include the popular Adeniji Adele,Oke Popoand Tapa Streets. The roads are presently structured as two-lane single carriageways. Official sources said, in previous years, government palliative intervention on the affected roads only had the effect of temporary relief to road users, after which the roads had deteriorated and broken apart. Senior government ministry officials disclosed that the damage to the affected roads has been worseneddue toserial misuse and abuse by several factors including increased and heavy motoring volumes by the motoring public, indiscriminate construction on drainage alignment, and poor maintenance strategy.
