Concrete road cheaper, safer says Dangote

AG-Dangote Construction Company has called on governments at all levels to switch over to rigid pavement for road construction, saying it is more affordable, durable, safer and stronger.

Representative of AG-Dangote, Engr. Tunde Jimoh, who made the appeal at the ongoing Engineering Assembly of the Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN) in Abuja, said the maximum life cycle of flexible pavement, known as Asphalt Road, was about 20 years.

Engr. Jimoh added that the life cycle of a rigid pavement or concrete road was 40 years or more.

He said, “The pavement type chosen depended on a number of factors which included expected traffic wheel load, load repetition, cost of construction and maintenance, etc.”

He said AG- Dangote was currently constructing the longest concrete road in the country located in Kogi State: the Obajana-Kabba Road. 

He added that the road was a 43-km concrete road project due to be commissioned in December.

He said the 24-km Itori-Ibese concrete road had since been delivered.

Engr Jimoh who is the company’s project manager, said it was set to deliver the dual carriage Apapa Wharf Road in Lagos this month.
