Lagos-Ibadan Road’ll Be Completed In 2021

The Sagamu-Lagos end of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway project will be completed by 2021, the contractor, Julius Berger, has said.

The Operations Manager, Julius Berger, Thamm Olaf, told the Senate Committee on Works, led by its Chairman, Kabiru Gaya, on Sunday,  that the project, which was to be completed in 2017, was stalled due to paucity of funds and the recent expansion.

Gaya and other members of the committee, who were on an oversight visit to road projects in Lagos, however,  stated that they were not happy about the slow pace of the work, despite the efforts and funds that had been put into it.

He said the Federal Government had spent a lot of money on the road and others across the country and had moved cost of road infrastructure from N500bn to 600bn in the 2019 budget to accommodate more road construction.
