In a bid to enhance transportation in the nation’s capital, the Federal Government of Nigeria has unveiled plans to build a $272 million, 5.76km light rail track in the Federal Capital Territory.
The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) Transportation Secretariat made this known on Monday through its Secretary, Alhaji Zakari Dobi.
He revealed that the bill for the construction of the Light Rail track is currently on the way to the FCT Minister’s table.
Inspecting the vandalized light rail track, station and Idu training centre in Abuja, Alhaji Dobi stated that he was optimistic the Minister would sign on the file for approval, adding that the secretariat was working to go back to the site for the construction of the 5.76km rail track and fixing of the vandalised areas of the track.
He said that the total bill for the construction of the rail track as approved is $272 million dollars.
