Nigeria – Dualisation of the carriageway of the Suleja Minna road (Phase II)
On January 16, 2015, the Salini Impregilo Group was awarded the contract for the dualisation of the carriageway of the Suleja Minna road (Phase II) in Nigeria. This is an important communication route since it provides access from the capital Abuja to the Northwest.
The project’s function is to improve mobility and to facilitate the potential development of the entire region.
The contract involves the construction, in 48 months, of a new carriageway between km 60 and km 101 and the complete rehabilitation of the existing road from km 0 to km 101. The client is the Ministry of Public Works of Nigeria. The value of the works is approx. € 112 million.
The Salini Impregilo Group is already working on the implementation of Phase 1 of the Suleja Minna.
The award of this new contract represents the achievement of the target set at the time of the award of Phase I allowing the Salini Impregilo Group to participate in the current transformation of Nigeria’s road sector and to continue to intensify its activities in the country, one of the largest of the African continent.
