FG urges caution
There will be a replacement of three expansion joints on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway to prevent accidents and damage to vehicles.
This was revealed by the Acting Federal Controller of Works in Lagos State, Mrs Forosola Oloyede, in a statement in Lagos on Thursday.
Mrs. Oloyede who has appealed for patience toward the planned works said the contractors on the project, Julius Berger Nigeria Plc would commence urgent repairs on three expansion joints on the Ibadan-bound lane of Kara Bridge section of the highway on Saturday.
She said this was in furtherance of the ongoing reconstruction works along the Berger-OPIC axis of the highway.
“The planned repair works would commence on Saturday, 3rd September 2022 and the general public is by this notice advised to drive with caution along this route during the period of the repair works,” she said.
Oloyede said the Federal Ministry of Works was collaborating with relevant state and federal agencies toward creating adequate diversion points and effectively managing traffic during period of repairs.
“While delays are expected on the outbound lane during this period, effective and efficient traffic management would be deployed to minimise delays and ensure a steady flow of traffic during this period,” she said.
She appealed to motorists to obey traffic rules, avoid driving against traffic and maintain lane discipline around the construction zone to avert gridlock.
