Construction work began again as Julius Berger Nigeria Plc returned to site on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
Indeed, the construction giant said repair work, which was stopped by the company owing to issues with the Federal Government, would now begin to ease travelling on the road for the Christmas and New Year festivities.
Officials of the company said road rehabilitation would start from kilometre 12 otherwise known as the ”long bridge” and would run towards the Shagamu Interchange.
They said the skeletal work started on August 8 at the Wawa Bus-stop along the expressway.
Indeed, work on the barriers had started as they were being taken to Wawa Bus-Stop where workers were already repairing the median along the expressway.
Julius Berger started the road rehabilitation from the Shagamu Interchange towards Lagos during the initial phase of the reconstruction exercise.
The rehabilitation of the entire Lagos-Ibadan expressway was awarded in 2013 at a total cost of N167 billion by former President Goodluck Jonathan.
The six-lane road rehabilitation project is being handled by Julius Berger Construction Company and Reynolds Construction Company (RCC).
The expressway is now being built to three lanes on both sides up to Sagamu Junction and two lanes up to Ibadan.
A fly-over and inter-change are being built at the Redemption Camp area to solve the perennial traffic grid lock on that section of the road.
