The proposed bill will repeal the Federal Roads Maintenance Agency Act, Federal Highways Act, and the Control of Advertisement on Federal Highways Act.
The bill was passed on Wednesday.
The proposed law is aimed at facilitating the establishment of an agency to govern and manage the nation’s federal roads network.
When established, the agency is expected to facilitate private sector participation in the development, financing, maintenance, management, and improvement of roads in Nigeria.
It would also regulate contracts for road concession and other forms of public-private partnership as well as set guidelines for the working of PPP contracts.
