FG directs Julius Berger to rehabilitate Lagos-Ibadan Expressway

The Federal Government on Wednesday directed Julius Berger Nigeria Plc to begin the rehabilitation of the bad portions on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway to reduce the hardship being faced by motorists.

The Director of Federal Highways (South West), Federal Ministry of Works, Mr. Kabiru Abdullahi, said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos.

“I was at the site and told Julius Berger to start patching the potholes. I believe by now, it has started,” he said.

He said the company initially had a problem on where to build its work yard but that the problem had been resolved.

Abdullahi said the process for the release of the 15 per cent contract sum to the company for the project was almost completed.

NAN reports that craters have developed on the highway around Isheri area on the Ibadan bound section of the road.

Craters have also appeared between the Mountain of Fire and Miracle Ministries and the Redeemed Camp on the Lagos bound lane, causing slow movement of vehicles.

President Goodluck Jonathan had on July 5 flagged off the reconstruction of the highway.
