Lagos-Ibadan Expressway To Be Ready In 2022 – Fashola



Babatunde Fashola, the Minister of Works and Housing, has said the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway will be completed in the first quarter of 2022.

He said this on Sunday in a radio show on Bond FM.

He attributed the delay of the project to the inability to totally shut down the road.

“As we speak, 80km has been completed. Some of the parts of the road used today have been completed.

“We cannot shut the road totally. The number of vehicles passing the road is not less than 40,000. We can’t shut Lagos-Ibadan road like that. The road should be completed in 2022. The construction will end in 2022.

“The Third Mainland Bridge is faster because we had the opportunity of shutting it down totally.”
