The Minister of Works, Dave Umahi, says the completion of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway is scheduled for mid-September, years after reconstruction commenced on the ever-busy route.
The minister made the statement on Tuesday during a visit to the sites of completed and ongoing Federal Government projects in Lagos State.
Construction work is ongoing on the last stretch of both sides of the expressway after several missed deadlines.
Umahi gave the assurance after being briefed by officials of the ministry and contractors handling the project.
As of the time of writing, the minister is also expected to inspect the reconstructed Apapa Oshodi expressway, the Deep Sea Ports, and other Federal Government projects on the Lagos and Ogun corridor.
