The Governor of Enugu state, South-East Nigeria, His Excellency Dr. Peter Ndubuisi Mbah and his team embarked on the massive 2-in-1 gigantic Enugu Central Terminal Project.
Just like an even better version of the Lagos-Oshodi Transportation Interchange, the Enugu Central Terminal will redefine the Transportation system of Enugu.
Interestingly, the Enugu Central terminal will be constructed by Planet Projects, the company that handled the Oshodi Interchange.
When completed, it will serve as a major transportation hub with a dual terminal that will be seamlessly linked for both Inter-State and Intra-State travel, the existing rail line, massive adjoining link roads, a major hub for commercial activities and a natural clean oxygenated air and green environment with the ambience of cities abroad.
The Project will be located within the Okpara Avenue and Market Road intersection of Enugu town and to be started and completed in 12 Months.

But being a considerate Government, Governor Peter Mbah and the State Commissioner For Transport Hon. Obi Ozor has since began an intensive Stakeholders Consultation and engagement with people who have existing businesses within the area, with the intention of temporarily relocating them to another location while the construction lasts.
Once completed, the businesses and other transport and logistics companies in the axis will now move into the ultra-Modern Enugu Central Terminal that will also serve as a major hub for a properly planned Mass Transit Station with Modular terminals at Garki, Abakpa and Nsukka.
While it is generally agreed that the South-East needs contemporary infrastructures as seen in Lagos and Abuja, projects like the Enugu Central Terminal will come to fruition with many sacrifices and that is why the Enugu State Government is insisting on relocating the will-be affected businesses to a temporary location and pegging the construction period for 12 months to ensure those displaced are quickly returned to continue their businesses which will amount to a win-win situation for the both parties.
