Edo State Ministry of Transportation is requesting for:

Title: Invitation for Pre-Qualification - Engineering, Procurement, And Construction (EPC) Of Truck Transit Parks (TTP)


Edo State is located in the southern part of Nigeria and serves as a transport hub with unique position as a gateway to many other States including Ondo, Delta, and Kogi. Its strategic location to the South-West, South-south, South-East and North-Central Regions of Nigeria, makes it the centre for trade, commerce, and industry, with a huge potential for the establishment of truck transit parks at different locations of the state to aid the transportation of goods for traders and organizations.

This unique advantage also makes the State a major transit route for trucks, which are prone to parking indiscriminately along the roadways, causing a lot of damage to road surfaces and to road-shoulders.

To improve public safety on the highways and also reduce travel time for all road users, Edo State government has recognised the need for proper truck transit parks and has selected two (2) locations for the development of truck transit parks within the State. These parks would offer economic and social facilities including motels, shopping complexes, restaurants, maintenance or mechanic workshops, fire stations, mega fuel stations, police stations, dormitories, etc.

Edo State Government therefore intends to pre-qualify a firm/consortium for the construction of the Truck Transit Parks (TTP) on an Engineering. Procurement and Construction (EPC) basis. The pre-qualified applicants will be issued Invitation to Tender by the State Ministry of Transport as a next step.
