Lagos-Ibadan Expressway construction resumes, FRSC urges cooperation

The Federal Road Safety Corps says it is working with other traffic and safety management agencies to mitigate traffic challenges along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

The corps also urged road users to be cautious while driving on the road as construction resumes on Tuesday.

Mr Clement Oladele, the Ogun Sector Commander of the FRSC, told the News Agency of Nigeria in Ota, on Tuesday, that the FRSC was duty bound to sensitise road users on keeping to instructions on the road to avoid any accidents or delays.

Oladele said Julius Berger Nigeria Plc would commence the rehabilitation and reconstruction of the road from Lagos to Sagamu interchange.

He, therefore, implored motorists to drive cautiously and exercise restraint during this period.

The commander also advised motorist to exercise some patience and plan extra time for travel to avoid delays and panic that the road diversions might cause.

“The expressway from Sahara interchange to Ibadan would also be resuming reconstruction works, which would lead to diversion of traffic, especially within the overriding axis of the highway,’’ Oladele said.

He also advised motorists to take note of the increased traffic due to vehicles returning after the yuletide.

Oladele urged motorists to drive at the average speed limit of 50 km/hr at the construction sites and use their lights due to poor visibility, especially in the mornings and late evenings.
