Abstract:
The study covers a view ad a detailed explanation of the modification required to be carried out on the main access road lining the federal secretariat and IMT civil soil laboratory and industrial centre in order to update its services functions. The need for easing the flow of traffic on this access road has risen since it’s a busy area in the institution. It’s required that the road be modernized and generally upgraded. The existing road is no longer in peak condition and is not capable of performing its functions as a result of traffic growth. The study modification, therefore, involved the assessment of the roads present condition involving carrying out soil tests and surveys as to what could be done and how best to enhance traffic.
