Written by Teniola Akerele on June 26, 2023
The Federal Government has suspended construction on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway to aid the flow of traffic in light of the forthcoming Eid el-Kabir festivities this week.
The Federal Ministry of Works and Housing (Works Sector), in a statement by the Federal Controller of Works, Lagos, Mrs Olukorede Kesha on Monday, noted that construction work on the busy highway would be suspended from Tuesday, June 27 to Sunday, July 2.
According to her, the action was prompted by a recent heavy traffic flow on the Lagos-Shagamu route “in the last couple of days”, inclement weather conditions, the forthcoming Eid Kabir and the advice of the traffic management team deployed to manage traffic-related issues on the project.
“Construction activities will resume by Monday, 3rd of July, 2023,” Kesha added.
