Lagos-Calabar Coastal Highway: FG withholds payment of compensations after project realignment

The Federal Government states it is withholding compensation payments to affected property owners on the Lagos-Calabar Coastal Highway project due to alterations in the initial plan.

The Minister of Works, Sen. Dave Umahi, stated this during his inspection of ongoing work on the Lagos-Calabar Coastal Highway and other road projects, including those in the Lekki Free Trade Zone, Dangote Tax Credit Route, and Eleko, among other areas, on Saturday in Lagos.

The minister mentioned that to address the compensation issues affecting various critical infrastructures, the government had reduced the entire corridor from Phase Two, Section Two of the coastal route to effective pavements of 55km, including the 10 train tracks.
