Many major highways in Nigeria are in a deplorable state, thus making users go through indescribable stress plying them. Motorists plying the routes share their disconcerting experiences.
Worsening frustration on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway
The Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, constructed in 1978 and said to be the busiest in Africa, has about 6,000 vehicles plying it daily according to the Federal Road Safety Corps.
Besides, the 127.6-kilometre-long road connects Oyo, Ogun and Lagos states, leading to the northern, southern and eastern regions of the country.
Julius Berger Nigeria and Reynolds Construction Company Nigeria were to take over the project after the Federal Government, on November 19, 2012, terminated its initial concession agreement with Wale Babalakin’s Bi-Courtney on the ground that it was unable make any substantial progress three years after it was granted the contract to rebuild and manage the road for 25 years.
Reconstruction is ongoing on the expressway. While Reynolds Construction Company is handling Section II of the road from Sagamu Interchange to Ibadan, Julius Berger Nigeria is handling the Section I, commencing from Ojodu Berger to Sagamu Interchange.
