Federal government will today commence the payment of compensation to deserving property owners affected by the construction of the 700km Lagos-Calabar Highway.

The minister of works, Egnr David Umahi started this yesterday when he fielded questions from journalists at the Landmark Beach Resort in Lagos.

He said the compensation would be paid to property owners on the gazetted federal government right-of-way.

Umahi emphasised that the payment would commence from May 1, 2024 to enable the government fulfill its promise for compensation, adding that the government old rate of compensation would be used.
The minister also announced that solar cameras would be installed on the Third Mainland Bridge by June.

According to him, the government had taken proactive measures to address the condition for the piles supporting the Third Mainland Bridge, adding that erosion and illegal dredging of sand had damaged the piles.

He said, “We are working on a number of bridges inherited, we inherited construction works at Eko Bridge, Marina Bridge, Liverpool bridge all done by Build well.’’
The minister also hinted that they are constructing CCTV and observation room to monitor the activity of illegal miners in the state even as he added that this would also check speed limits on the Third Mainland Bridge.

Umahi had earlier said the demolition was in alignment to strengthen economic diversification along corridors of Lagos and eight states on the coastal highway project while describing it as the most economically viable coastal road that would connect nine states and also align with the deep sea port, Hi-Tech roads and Dangote Refinery.
