Infrastructure

The Government has allocated 35% of its capital expenditure to infrastructure. Opportunities abound in investing in infrastructure in the State on both outright development and on a Build-Operate and Transfer basis. With abundant natural resources like clay, sand and gravels, investors in infrastructure, especially civil engineering will find ready stock of deposits to work with.

Roads in the State are being expanded and upgraded. The development of Deep Sea Port, which is hoped to be an Oil & Gas Free Trade Zone will not only develop the State but will create employment for the people of Bayelsa. The construction of rail lines from Yenagoa to Brass and Yenagoa to Agge will boost commercial activities in the State.

The proposed Airport in New Yenagoa City will facilitate the easy movement of tourists and investors into and out of Bayelsa State.
