Julius Berger returns to complete construction on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway
The News Agency of Nigeria has indicated in a report on Sunday that work was ongoing at some failed spots around the Redemption Camp area of the road and that major construction work was being done at the Arepo area.
The repair on the Arepo spot caused huge road bloack on the Long Bridge on Friday and travellers spent about two hours moving from the Berger Bus to Arepo, a distance that would usually have taken less than 10 mins.
It was not clear though if the Ogun State Government facilitated the return of Julius Berger to the site. A signpost erected by the state government was still at the Arepo spot as of Sunday, showing that it was responsible for the palliative work.
Julius Berger is handling Section One of the project, which stretches from the Sagamu Inter-Change to Lagos, while RCC is in charge of Section Two, stretching from the Sagamu Inter-Change to Ojoo, Ibadan.
The expected date for the completion of the project, which is being financed through Public-Private Partnership, is July 3, 2017.
