The Federal Government is set to reopen all diversions around construction zones on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway to motorists ahead of the Christmas festivity.
The Director of the Federal Highways, South-West, Funso Adebiyi disclosed this during his interaction with truck drivers in Ogere, Ogun State on Monday.
This directive will take effect from December 15.
Adebiyi said the decision was to ensure free flow of traffic during the Christmas period, adding that work would resume after the season.
He also ordered truck drivers to either relocate or move backwards by at least 50 metres from the construction zone, saying the activities of the truck drivers have made the reconstruction of some sections of the road almost impossible.
According to Adebiyi, about 65 kilometres of the road had been completed – 20 kilometres on Section 1 from the Old Toll Gate to Sagamu interchange being handled by Julius Berger and 45 kilometres on Section 2, from the interchange to Ibadan being handled by the RCC.
