What we call “Transportation Infrastructure”
Our Transport Infrastructure practice includes all means of movement through Roads, Highway, Rail , Airport, Shipping, Offshore & Marine Logistics
Transport infrastructure is a key driver for economic development/growth in the West Africa sub-region. The unlocking of the development of transport infrastructure through a number of options such as appropriate legal & regulatory framework, private sector participation and long-term financing. Inefficient transport infrastructure adds between 7 – 10% to the cost of doing business in Nigeria. As part of the ongoing reforms, the strategy for improving the transport infrastructure emphasizes the leading role of private sector capital. This opens up great avenues for investment.

Transport is vital to the well-functioning of economic activities and a key to ensuring social well-being and cohesion of populations. Transport ensures everyday mobility of people and is crucial to the production and distribution of goods. Adequate infrastructure is a fundamental precondition for transport systems. In their endeavour to facilitate transport, however, decision-makers in governments and international organizations face difficult challenges. These include the existence of physical barriers or hindrances, such as insufficient or inadequate transport infrastructures, bottlenecks and missing links, as well as lack of funds to remove them. Solving these problems is not an easy task. It requires action on the part of the governments concerned, actions that are coordinated with other governments at international level.
