The Nigerian Institution of Highway and Transportation Engineers (NIHTE) has scored Lagos State and Federal Government high on road construction and infrastructure drive in Lagos metropolis and Nigeria.
NIHTE National Chairman, Mr George Nsonwu gave the commendation in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) after inspecting ongoing rehabilitation works under the Lagos Third Mainland Bridge on Wednesday.
Nsonwu said the ongoing rehabilitation was huge and demonstrated the commitment of the Federal Government to quality infrastructure delivery.
He said that repairs on the surface of the bridge were visible when it was executed but the public was unaware of detailed ongoing construction works underneath to stabilise the bridge.
“As a professional body, it is our intention to also visit the bridge and by way of advocacy, also showcase the enormity of what the government is doing.
“That is what we did today, we were there and we saw the expansion joints and bearings which they have changed and we saw the new ones they have stored.
