Construction work on the important Loko-Oweto Bridge project in Nigeria should be complete in May 2019. The project has cost around US$141 million, with contractor Reynolds Construction Company having started work on the 1.8km structure in 2011. Spanning the River Benue, the bridge forms part of the 108km road link connecting Otukpo with Oweto and improves transport connections between Benue State and Nasarawa State. Work on a stretch of the road has been carried CGC Nigeria Limited.
Upgrade work is also planned for the road connecting Aliade to Makurdi. This also is an important link as there is heavy traffic between Onitsha and Enugu to the south and Makurdi, as well as Jos lying further north. Work on the Otukpo-Taraku -Aliade road is being carried out by Rockbridge Construction. Work on the Otukpo-Ninth Mile Road is also being carried out Rockbridge Construction.
