The Kaduna State Government on Tuesday commenced the second phase of Kaduna Urban Renewal Project with the signing and issuance of contract documents for additional five roads.
Mohammed Lawal Magaji, an engineer and Managing Director of Kaduna State Roads Agency (KADRA), who signed the contract on behalf of the State Government, said the contract has been awarded to Ronchess Global.
News Express reports that Governor Nasir El-Rufai had in July last year awarded the contract for the construction of seven new roads and the dualisation/upgrading of 14 existing roads, in the first phase of the Urban Renewal Project.
Katuru Road, Alkali Road and Muhammadu Buhari Way have been dualised while Gamji Gate has been upgraded and the Splash Park has been opened. Galaxy Mall, Yakubu Gowon Way and the Underpass are under construction.
The KADRA MD promised that the second phase of the project “will soon start because we have finished all the paper work.”
“All the five roads would be dualised,” he said.
Among them is Isa Kaita Road, which, from Millennium City Roundabout, will link up with newly dualised Alkali Road.
“Then we have Waziri Maccido Road which passes in front of Zamani College; it will also be dualised to link Isa Kaita with Rabah Road,” Magaji added.
According to him, the third road, which starts from Katuru Road which falls under the first phase of Kaduna Urban Renewal, will follow through Karaye Road to Kasuwan Sati and link up with College Road at Unguwan Dosa.
The KADRA MD also said that the dualised Sultan Road will start from Isa Kaita Road to Surame Road, before linking up with Golf Course Road that leads to Unguwan Rimi.
He further stated that the main road leading to Sabon Tasha, from the flyover, down to Television Garage through Peugeot Junction, will be dualised.
