The Federal Government had initially signed a N4.34 billion agreement with the group in June.
This was disclosed by the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, while he was speaking at the Lafarge Road Construction Summit in Lagos on Friday, September 15, 2017.
He said, "You'll recall that we had an agreement with the Dangote Group to rehabilitate and reconstruct the Apapa Wharf road using cement.
"They have since come back to say 'We want to take the entire road network from Apapa, Liverpool, all through to Marine Beach to Mile 2 to Oshodi to Oworonshoki and to the Toll Gate, a stretch of 35km so that we develop one solution to the port evacuation problem'.
"We held a meeting on Tuesday, we have agreed that this is the route they will take and they have written back to confirm their commitment and what is left is for the design consultant to complete the design so that we then use that to determine the cost and we use this solution to solve that road network using concrete."
In June, the Federal Government signed a N4.34 billion Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the group and other stakeholders for the reconstruction of the road.
According to Fashola, the decision of transporters to use the road for haulage increased gridlock on it and caused degeneration which created hardship for residents of the area.
