Wednesday will remain one of the worst days for motorists along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, according to reports, hundreds of motorists and commuters were left stranded for several hours on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway on Wednesday.
Those affected the most were motorists and commuters travelling from Ibafo to Berger bus stop end of the road following the closure of a section of the road for construction work to resume.
It took over four hours on the average to get to Berger bus stop in Lagos from Magboro in Ogun State, a journey that ordinarily would not take up to 10 minutes, with many vehicles breaking down in the gridlock and compounding the situation.
The Lagos inbound section of the road, which was blocked for reconstruction for three months last year, was reopened just before the Christmas and New Year festive season, but the other section was shut to traffic on Monday and the only available section was divided into two for Lagos inbound and outbound traffic.
It was reported that the four lanes at the Kara end of the road had been reduced to two, creating a bottleneck for vehicles trying to enter Lagos.
