The ongoing construction of the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway is reaching its peak as work is ongoing at full force.

In July, Julius Berger construction company was mobilised to resume work immediately on the Lagos section causing hardship as work has stopped for quite some time.

Julius Berger has been doing some massive construction works especially on the corridor of Kola bus stop that’s prone to accidents and so far, they are speeding up the works.

The Lagos – Abeokuta Expressway is an 81-kilometre-long (50 mi) expressway connecting Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun State, and Ikeja, the capital of Lagos, Nigeria’s largest city.

The Lagos – Abeokuta expressway is Nigeria busiest highway, linking people living in metropolitan and greater Lagos, as well as people from outside the state. This expressway is the busiest inter-state and intra-city route in Nigeria and handles more than 250,000 PCUs daily and constitutes one of the largest road networks in Africa.[2] It is part of the Federal Roads Maintenance Agency (FERMA) projects, concerned with road improvement and connectivity between the States of Nigeria.

The contract was awarded to Julius Berger Nigeria and Reynolds Construction Company Limited at a sum of ₦22,000,000,000.00, equivalent to $61,380,000.00.
