Why We Suspend Work On Lagos-Ibadan Expressway – FG

The Federal Government has explained the reason it suspended construction on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway from Tuesday June 27, 2023. It noted that it was to aid the free flow of traffic during the forthcoming Eid-el-Kabir festivities.

The decision to halt development, according to the Federal Controller of Works, was made as a result of recent heavy traffic on the Lagos-Shagamu route “in the last couple of days,” unfavourable weather, and the impending Eid Kabir.

She stated that work on the construction site will start up again on Monday, July 3, 2023.
