COASTAL HIGHWAY: TINUBU TO FLAG-OFF SECTIONS THREE AND FOUR IN CROSS RIVER TO AKWA IBOM

As part of the commitment of the Tinubu Administration to sustain its on-going infrastructural development drive   in line with its Renewed Hope Agenda. The Federal Government has announced plans to commence the flag-off of the next phase of the Lagos- Calabar Coastal highway from Cross River to Akwa Ibom. 

The Minister of Works Senator (Engr) David Umahi disclosed this at the stakeholder’s engagement meeting in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state on 29, June 2024.
According to the Minister of Works, “we are here to introduce sections three and four of the famous Lagos- Calabar Coastal Highway.
"We started and awarded section one which started in Lagos and terminated at deep port in Lagos and is at 474 km
"There is section two that is starting at Lekki Deep Sea Port and taking it to the famous Dangote Refinery" 

The Honourable Minister added that the President has graciously directed that sections three and four must start at Cross River and stop at Akwa Ibom.
Senator Umahi recalled that the Senate President once addressed the people of Akwa Ibom state, and he assured them that "sections three and four will start on this part of the coastal highway and this is the fulfilment of that assurance, and we are happy doing this”. He added.
Speaking further, the Minister explained "that section three has 27km on Akwa Ibom land 38km on Cross River State. While section four is entirely on Akwa Ibom that is 80km.
When you add 27km and 80km, you have 107km, so you are benefiting through maximizing this coastal highway.

"When we complete the procurement process and award these sections three and four, work will start in many sub- sections of this sections all at the same time.

"Tinubu is a man who matches his words with actions. So, we are happy with the level of commendations and support we receive from Nigerians for the so many benefits of the coastal highway
