Julius Berger Begins Reconstruction Of Ijora Causeway, Drainages In Lagos


In spite of the heavy rainfalls in Lagos, construction giant, Julius Berger Nigeria PLC; on Monday, commenced the reconstruction and rehabilitation of the ever-busy Ijora Causeway link road.

This is just as the company announced the schedule for reconstruction and rehabilitation works on critical sections of the Lagos – Shagamu highway project.

The Ijora Causeway link road being rehabilitated is a major connection to the city’s wharf and port in Apapa, Idumota international market and Lagos Island area. It also connects road users to Lagos mainland as well as Costain, Oyingbo and Surulere parts of Lagos.

The rehabilitation work, which is an impressive addition to the rich Corporate Social Responsibility, (CSR), record of the company, is projected to take about two weeks to complete.

Details of the ongoing effort show that before a fresh asphalt overlay would be done on the link road, aspects of the road, especially under the Ijora Olopa bridge are being completely excavated while blocked drainages in the area are to be cleared to check recurring flooding that spill into the main road at the slightest rainfall.

Road users and owners of businesses along the link road lauded Julius Berger for the effort just as roadside artisans that include vulcanisers, petty traders and mechanics are happy saying that when completed, access to their businesses by potential customers would be enhanced.

Julius Berger’s CSR efforts have been upscale and it spans not just construction and rehabilitation of roads but education, youth and sports development, health and diverse enlightenment programmes as well as other worthy stakeholder welfare programmes that top the enviable list of the company’s CSR efforts.
