FERMA was established to maintain Federal Roads across Nigeria.

To efficiently and effectively monitor and administer road maintenance with the objective of keeping all federal roads in good and safe conditions.

The Federal Roads Maintenance Agency’s (FERMA) Act is an enactment in 2002 by the National Assembly of the Federal Republic of Nigeria used in the establishment of the Agency and matters connected therewith as amended in 2007.

Road infrastructural maintenance is paid for from the annual subvention (Budget).

The Federal Government spends more on new roads.

There are about 36,000km of paved Federal road network.

Federal roads and bridges are designed by the Federal Ministry of Works in collaboration with designated consultants, and constructed by reputable contractors.

Solutions vary depending on the condition of the roads, extent of damage topography, soil condition and soil types.

When it comes to road maintenance, every Nigerian is a stakeholder who should be protective of our road and not abuse it e.g. cutting of roads, dumping of refuse on road sides and drains, vandalization of line drains, burning of tyres on the road.
