ABSTRACT
 The study cover a view ad detailed explanation of the modification required to be carried out on the main access road lining federal secretariat and IMT civil soil laboratory and industrial centre order to update it’s services functions. The need for easing the flow of traffic on this access road has risen, since it’s a busy area in the institution. It’s required that the road be modernized and generally upgraded. The existing road is no longer in peak condition and is not capable of performing it’s functions as a result of traffic growth. The study modification therefore involved the assessment of the roads present condition involving carrying out soil test and survey as to what could be done and how best to enhance traffic.
