Ibadan Dry Port CCECC/CRCC – Ibadan 2018
As part of the National Integrated Infrastructure Masterplan 2014-2043 the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) as represented by the Nigerian Shippers Council (NSC) has set out plans for the development of a series of Truck Transit Parks (TTP) located at identified key nodal points within the existing national road network, and Inland Dry Ports (IDPs) to be located amongst others at Kaduna, Jos, Isiala-Ngwa, and Ibadan (Oyo State).
This proposal located in Olorisaoko, Ibadan, provides for the following: truck stands and hardscape paving, tank farms, warehousing and logistics, container yards and stacking areas, circa 3.75km of rail sidings for container handling, administrative office block and associated functions, staff accommodation and support facilities amongst others. This to enable shifting of port activities and operations (other than berthing, offloading, loading etc) into hinterland or more inland locations becomes the most viable facility to achieve port decongestion and operational growth within the sector.
Spread across 34.5Ha of land the facility is planned to provide the following: warehouses, tank farms, rail sidings, bulk-handling areas, container yards, logistics operations, port administration and accommodation, security and support services amongst others.
This submission formed the Technical Framework for the ICRC approved OBC, the scheme is currently under full implementation and planned to serve as the take-off node for the rail line extension from Ibadan to Kano.
