In order to ensure a free flow of traffic during the Christmas period, the Federal Government has said that all diversions around construction zones on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway would be opened to motorists from December 15. This was made known by the Director of the Federal Highways, South West, Funso Adebiyi when he visited truck drivers in Ogere, Ogun State. While speaking on the journey so far in regard to the completion of the road, Adebiyi said that about 65 kilometers of the road had been completed. He said that 20 kilometers on Section 1 from the Old Toll Gate to Sagamu interchange was being handled by Julius Berger and 45 kilometers on Section 2, from the interchange to Ibadan was being handled by the RCC. Adebiyi stressed that the activities of truck drivers on the road had made it almost impossible to reconstruct some sections. He went on to order that the truck drivers should either relocate or move backward by at least 50 meters from the construction zone. He said that the RCC also had to suspend workaround Ogere due to the presence of articulated vehicles parked illegally on the highway.
