Business Julius Berger: Gridlocks on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway Won't End Till November



The construction company rehabilitating the Lagos-Ibadan expressway, Julius Berger, has stated that traffic gridlocks on the road won't subside till November, 2016.

According to Mr. Wolfgang Loesser the Manager, West Division of the firm, said the rehabilitation exercise, particularly the 5km long bridge where major work was being executed, would not be completed at least until November ending. This is because work on the bridge is complex due to the several stages of construction and the required diligence, he said.

“We can only do it if everybody is disciplined and takes care to drive safely within the construction area," he said.

The Ogun state Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Mr. Lekan Adegbite however said government would open up a parallel earth road to serve as an alternative route to ease traffic at the long bridge section of the expressway.
