Lagos-Ibadan Expressway To Be Completed 2022 – Fashola


Lagos-Ibadan Expressway To Be Completed 2022 - FasholaMinister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has on Sunday said Lagos-Ibadan Expressway will be completed in the first quarter of 2022.

He made this known during an interview on Bond FM on Sunday, adding that the delay in the completion of the project was caused by the government’s inability to shut down the bridge totally.

However, he noted that 80 kilometres of the 127-kilometre road had been completed, urging road users to be patient with the government.

Fashola further expressed;

As we speak, 80km has been completed. Some of the parts of the road used today have been completed.

We cannot shut the road totally. The number of vehicles passing the road is not less than 40,000. We can’t shut Lagos-Ibadan road like that. The road should be completed in 2022. The construction will end in 2022.The Third Mainland Bridge is faster because we had the opportunity of shutting it down totally.

The reconstruction/rehabilitation of Lagos-Ibadan Expressway was flagged-off in 2013 and was awarded to two firms.

Julius Berger is constructing section one which stretches from Ojota in Lagos state to Sagamu Interchange, while RCC is working from the Sagamu Interchange to Ibadan.
