Lagos-Ibadan expressway construction still 40 percent completed since 2013 -Kuti

As the Federal Government prepares for partial closure of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway on Monday for repairs, the Federal Controller of Works in Lagos, Mr Adedamola Kuti, says the project is still 40 per cent completed.

Kuti told  (NAN) in Lagos that the project, which began in 2013 and earlier scheduled to end in 2017, would now be completed by 2021/22 because the Muhammadu Buhari administration included some missing features.

He listed the additional features to include under passes, foot bridges, flyovers, toll plazas and road expansion.

On the Ikorodu-Sagamu Road, expected to serve as an alternative route as construction work progresses on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Kuti said that the project was about 18 per cent completed.

He, however, added that critical sections of the highway likely to cause gridlock had been stabilised.

The official said that the ministry of Works, Housing and Power was working at night on some roads to ease gridlock.

He noted that several road projects were abandoned in the past due to funding constraint, compelling the government to seek alternative sources of funding to fix more roads.(NAN)
