0 108

The federal government on Saturday apologised for the hardship being faced by road users due to construction works on the Berger-Opic axis of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
The Acting Federal Controller of Works in Lagos State, Forosola Oloyede, said in a statement that the government was aware of the traffic gridlock due to the ongoing reconstruction works on the expressway.
According to her, the government feels the pains of the people, especially residents of Lagos and Ogun States who are at the receiving end of the inconveniences due to the gridlock.
Motorists plying the axis have continued to spend long hours in gridlock daily, a situation with the hardship getting worse in the last three days.
Mrs Oloyede promised that the government would make necessary improvements in the traffic management system on the road in order to alleviate the suffering of the road users.
“To this end, the Federal Ministry of Works has concluded plans with the contractor to suspend the works for today Saturday 27th August, 2022 in order to plan and make provisions for required improvements in traffic management on the road,” she said.
