The engineer in charge of the supervision of section 1 of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway reconstruction/rehabilitation contract, by the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing, Kayode Ibrahim, has said that the project had reached 32 per cent completion.
Mr. Ibrahim told newsmen on Monday that work had been completed on one section of the Long Bridge and on various critical sections. The section is being handled by Julius Berger.
The engineer said more warning signs and crash barriers had been deployed to the highway to ensure free flow of traffic and check accidents.
“We will complete the repair of the long bridge by December 15 and we will complete all palliatives to make the road motorable before the Yuletide.
“The entire project is 32 per cent completed. We have done earthworks, laid asphalt and base course, done culverts and drains on various changes between Redeemed Camp and the Sagamu Interchange.
“We have constructed trapezoidal drains, rectangular drains and retaining walls on various portions and also laid polymer modified asphalt on various shoulders. We are working massively on various portions,” he said.
