Lagos-Ibadan Expressway reconstruction to start from Ibadan – Bi-Courtney

By on January 27, 2012

The expansion and reconstruction of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, initially scheduled to start from Lagos, will now start at the Ibadan end of the road.

Oyo State Governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, has welcomed the arrangement and offered to support Bi-Courtney Highways Services Limited, the concessionaire handling the road, in speeding up the modernisation project.

The project was to have taken off from the old Lagos toll gate with the provision of two additional lanes on each direction up to Sagamu interchange, and one lane from Sagamu to Ibadan.
