Fashola reveals when Lagos-Ibadan Expressway will be completed

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

He said this while speaking on Bond FM this Sunday.

According to Fashola, the delay in the completion of the project was caused by the government’s inability to shut down the bridge totally.

He noted that the 80 kilometres of the 127-kilometre road had been completed, urging road users to be patient with the government.

The minister said, “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.
