The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) Ogun State Command has on Wednesday announced that the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway will be temporarily closed to enable road construction.
In a statement released on Wednesday by FRSC, there will be a temporary closure of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway which will affect only the Ibadan-bound carriageway of the expressway from Magboro to Kara and Ibafo. This closure is set to last from Wednesday, May 22 till Friday, May 24.
The closure which will last for three days will enable Julius Berger lay asphalt on the road.
“This is to inform the motoring public that Julius Berger Nigeria PLC, currently rehabilitating the Lagos–Ibadan Expressway, would be temporarily closing only the Ibadan bound carriageway from Magboro to Kara and Ibafo, scheduled to commence from Wednesday, 22 May, 2019 and reopened on Friday, 24 May, 2019.
“The temporary closure is to lay a section of 400m of wearing asphaltic surface on the affected section of the corridor.
“The closure would not affect traffic inbound Lagos around the affected road, but would narrow the carriageway which is expected to build up traffic around the mentioned sections,” the statement read in part.
Motorists are therefore advised by the FRSC Sector Commander, Clement Oladele to take note of the development and plan their trips accordingly.
The FRSC Sector Commander also warned those using the corridor within the period to obey all traffic rules and regulations, including refraining from driving against traffic, as violators are liable to be apprehended for dangerous driving which attracts the fine of fifty thousand naira (N50,000) and impoundment of the erring vehicle.
