‘Kaduna urban renewal to attract investors’

The road component of the Kaduna Urban Renewal Programme is aimed at opening up the state’s metropolises, cutting travel time and also attracting investors, the Managing Director, Kaduna State Roads Agency (KADRA), Engr Mohammed Lawal Magaji, has said.

Magaji, who said this while speaking to journalists in Kaduna, said all the selected roads within the metropolis that are being dualised or upgraded, are    based on the Max Lock Master plan for Kaduna city.

He said the new road that will connect Kabala Costain to Aliyu Makama road in Barnawa will not only link Kaduna North and Kaduna South local government areas but will ease traffic congestion around stadium roundabout.

The MD also said a bridge is being constructed over river Kaduna as part of the project that will connect the two parts of the state, adding that the structures have already been erected.

He said the new 13.68km road from Malali to Rabah road down  to Nnamdi Azikiwe will  link up to the Rigasa train station and another 5.73km road will connect the Umaru Musa Yar’Adua road in Millennium City to the eastern by-pass.”

“When the two roads are completed, the eastern and western bypasses will be connected and motorists can drive from one part of town to the other without traffic congestion,” he said.

He said the urban renewal programme comprises 14 components, including roads, mass transit, housing, improved land use, street lights, parks and recreational centres as well as markets, neighbourhood centres and waste management.
