Not many many have heard about the Lagos-Sagamu expressway as many seem to confuse it with the popular Lagos-Ibadan Expressway. The road which was known for being a death trap to the motorists plying this road is wearing a new look.

Lagos Sagamu Road Construction

According to reports by Julius Berger, the firm handling the road, Julius Berger is currently undertaking the rehabilitation and reconstruction of the 43.6 km stretch of the Lagos to Shagamu portion of the Lagos – Ibadan Expressway. The project includes expansion of the highway to three lanes in both directions, as well as maintenance and construction of several bridges and flyovers.

As the main artery of Nigeria’s road network, the vital expressway withstands a heavy volume of vehicle traffic, including those with high axle loads. Construction requires a sustainable solution reflective of the general environmental and specific traffic-related needs of the dual carriageway. To address this need, Julius Berger carried out parameter studies to establish baselines for the development of an enhanced asphalt design. As a result, a new and improved asphalt mix-design was formulated to optimise the rutting resistance and durability of the road. To further improve long-term performance, the expressway will feature an extra asphalt base course with a thickness of 15 cm, in addition to the two asphalt layers made of a binder and wearing course, which are standard for road construction in Nigeria.
