    I hope they properly drain the roads, use Stone Mastic Asphalt, and use polyester fabrics at the base of swampy areas. These should mitigate the common issues we have with building roads in Nigeria. The Marshall system is antiquated and they should research Superpave systems. More lanes and shoulders should save lives, and signs such as slippery when wet and curves ahead should be properly sited. We keep hearing that overpasses are too expensive, but we cannot afford not to have them. A lot of accidents and deaths can be avoided from Trucks having to turn at little breaks on the Highway. If you need help, just ask!!!
