The Federal Controller of Works in Lagos, Mr Adedamola Kuti, on Saturday said that the Federal Ministry of Works was working toward speedy completion of all road projects in Lagos.
Kuti told the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos that massive progress had been achieved on Section one of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway reconstruction project.
NAN reports that Section one of the project extends from Ojota in Lagos to Sagamu Interchange and it is being handled by Julius Berger Nigeria Plc, while Section two being constructed by RCC, extends from Sagamu Interchange to Ibadan.
The controller said that it was difficult to ascribe a percentage to the construction done so far because additional works were recently added to the project. He said that work was progressing fast.
“The most important thing is that the contractor is on ground and is working. Right now, Julius Berger is working on the 4km stretch that should be completed any moment from now.
“Work has already commenced at the section very close to the Redeemed Christian Church of God. It has also been opened to traffic.
“For now, the 4km stretch being worked on by Julius Berger around Kilometre 20 and 21, should be completed within this month and that section would be opened to traffic,’’ he said.
He said that the Lagos-Badagry Expressway project had just been awarded by the Federal Executive Council. Kuti said that work would soon begin from Agbara Junction toward Badagry to Seme border.
He said that the project was awarded to Messrs CGJ Nigeria Ltd.
“The project was just awarded last week. Hopefully, before the end of this year, there should be an official commissioning of the project, ‘’ Kuti said.
