Bus parks in Port Harcourt City, Rivers State, were dispersed across major roads in the city and had no considerations for passenger comfort, safety or security. They were largely unregulated with their activities spilling onto major roads and causing traffic congestion all around the ‘Garden City’.
In a quest to remove this traffic congestion and provide world-class transport infrastructure to ensure passenger comfort and safety, the Mega Bus Terminals were conceived for development at the four nodes of the Port Harcourt City –Omagwa, Eleme, Oyigbo and Emouha.
Planet Projects Limited, under an Engineering, Procurement & Construction (EPC) Contract, delivered the Terminals at Omagwa and Eleme. Specific tasks conducted include –
- Transport & Traffic Studies,
- Topographic Surveys,
- Geotechnical Surveys,
- Conceptual & Detailed Designs and,
- Construction of the Eleme & Omagwa Terminals.
The project was completed in 2009.
