  • Client
    Federal Ministry of Works
  • Area
    Abuja – Keffi Road FCT, Nigeria
  • Project Value
    85 Million USD
  • Initiation Date
    February, 2001
  • Completion Date
    September, 2005
The total length of each carriageway of the road is 50 Km, with 3 flyovers each of 72m long and 4 river bridges with variable lengths ranging from 20m to 120m.

The works involved presented several challenges; a 18m high cut, a deep filling area, and different terrain conditions from rock to very low bearing soil due to high water table. The project was highly covered by the media as it is the main road access network connecting the capital to the eastern part of the country.

After its successful and timely completion, the project was noted for its high quality standard, placing Setraco Nigeria Limited into the league of top national construction companies.
