What you may not know.
The distance of the part of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway road being worked on spans 600km from Berger (New Garage Bus Stop) – Ogun River (Kara Bridge). The estimated time frame for the completion of the road reconstruction process is about 4 months.
Julius Berger Plc (which handles the Lagos portion of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway road) of slow pace of work, is causing motorists extreme hardship in their commute, compared to Reynolds Construction Company (RCC), (handling the other section of the road to Ibadan, Oyo State), which has succeeded in rehabilitating the Ibadan-Sagamu interchange end of the highway.
What alternative routes exist?
Lagos-Ibadan Expressway has diversion points from Berger to the Ogun river bridge corridor. However, motorists that frequently ply the route suggest that those seeking alternative routes/corridors should use the Victoria Island-Lekki-Ajah-Ijebu Ode axis to connect the Sagamu-Ijebu Ode-Ore -Benin corridor.
Motorists can also come in from Lagos-Iyana-Ipaja -Ota-Ifo-Itori-Abeokuta to connect the Sagamu interchange road to either Ibadan, or Ijebu Ode; or Lagos-Ikorodu-Ogijo-Mosinmi-Sagamu to connect Ijebu Ode for those travelling to Benin.
What about inbound and outbound traffic on the expressway?
Traffic has so far been well managed with diversions back into the road going inward Lagos at Berger Intersection linking River Valley Estate. The journey into Lagos is straight forward forthwith.
Furthermore, outbound Lagos traffic has been divided into two (2)
lanes, both ways from the intersection linking Isheri/Olowora Kara
Bridge, where the road diversion ends and normalcy resumes inward
