GOOD NEWS! Lagos-Ibadan expressway to be completed soon
« on: November 14, 2016, 02:50:15 PM »


– Expansion and rehabilitation work on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway will be completed soon

– This is the submission of the minister of power, works and housing, Babatunde Fashola
 
– Fashola made the statement while marking his one year in office

The expansion and rehabilitation work on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway will be completed soon, minister of power, works and housing, Babatunde Fashola has said.

Minister of power, Babatunde Fashola says the Lagos-Ibadan expressway will be completed soon

According to The Nation, Fashola made the comment while reviewing his first year in office in Lagos at the weekend.

The minister said the long bridge at the Lagos-Ogun boundary on the road had to be shut because construction work was ongoing underneath it.

“Roads are depreciating assets that need constant maintenance and regulated usage,” he said.

He stated that the government is looking into the issue of double-axle articulated vehicles that transport more tonnage than most roads were built to accommodate.

Fashola said the issue of overloaded trucks was being addressed, adding that weighbridges will be reintroduced on the roads to arrest overloading.

He however said warehouses have to be built by the weighbridges to take in offloaded extra goods from arrested haulage vehicles.

Meanwhile, the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), in a statement at the weekend, said Ibadan bound traffic will be diverted to the Lagos bound carriageway CH38+400 and CH 43+700 to allow the laying of the wearing course.

The diversions will lead to the closure of the Ibadan bound exit road leading to Sagamu as well as the Sagamu bound exit road leading to Ibadan.

The temporary closure would be from Wednesday, November 16 till Wednesday, November 23.

The FRSC announced on Thursday, November 3, that a section of the Lagos/Ibadan expressway will be closed from that day to Saturday, November 12 by Julius Berger Nigeria Plc.

While the announcement immediately caused panic among road users,  the FRSC quickly put out another statement assuring motorists plying the road of free flow of traffic in spite of the ongoing repairs.
