The Federal Ministry of Power Works and Housing has instructed project contractors of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway to accelerate reconstruction work on the road during the independence holiday to forestall delay in completion.
Julius Berger Nigeria Plc is the contractor handling section one rehabilitation/reconstruction of Lagos-Ibadan Expressway project.
Section one of the project spans from Ojota in Lagos State to the Sagamu Interchange in Ogun State.
A statement by Hakeem Bello, Special Adviser, Communications, to the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, said the move was to speed up work.
Bello said: “In order to improve the travel experience of commuters and speed up work on the reconstruction of the Lagos – Ibadan Expressway, the Ministry has told Julius Berger Nigeria Plc to work during the public holidays, October 1 to October 3, 2016.
“We appreciate the need for speedy conclusion of the road; also thanked the road users for their forbearance.”
Bello also said with good weather, the work on the important economic road would improve.
