The Lagos-Ibadan Expressway will soon be in great condition as it is about to undergo rehabilitation soon! Check below for the state's plan of this rehabilitation as well as what drivers must remember when travelling through this section!

Rehabilitation of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway is set to commence on August 3, 2019 – this was disclosed by Mr Clement Oladele, whoi is Ogun state Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC). He was speaking to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday, July 22, 2019.

The Commander stated that the project will be executed by Julius Berger Nigeria Plc who had confirmed commencement of the project next month.

Oladele revealed that the rehabilitation work would cut across Berger down to Kara Cattle Market, around Ogun River Bridge, making a total of 1.4 kilometers.

What motorists should pay attention to

  • Alternative routes

In the course of the rehabilitation work, there will be diversion of traffic, Oladele stated. Inbound Lagos traffic will be channeled to the carriageway for outgoing Lagos traffic. Hence, both outward and inward traffic from Lagos will be on the same half of the expressway. Motorists are advised to make use of alternative routes such as the Ikorodu – Sagamu, Lagos – Ota – Itori – Abeokuta and Epe/Ajah – Ijebu – Ode routes in the course of the project.

  • Traffic rules & regulations

Speaking further, the FRSC official urged motorists to cooperate with personnel of the FRSC as well as those of other transport and security agencies that would be at strategic locations to manage the traffic.

”They are also enjoined to observe lane discipline and avoid driving against traffic as violators risk impoundment of their vehicles and N50,000 traffic fine.”

In conclusion, Oladele urged motorists who find themselves in emergency situations to call the toll free number of the FRSC 122 for assistance.
