- The federal government has reopened the Kara part of the Lagos-Ibadan expressway
- The major road was reopened on Sunday, December 1, after conclusion of palliative repairs
- The reopening of the road, no doubt, has brought about deep relief for motorists who had suffered serious gridlock while it was closed
Commuters plying the Kara bridge axis of the Lagos-Ibadan expressway are now breathing a sigh of relief as the federal government has reopened the road.
The reopening on the Kara part of the major expressway has brought about free flow of traffic as opposed to the constant gridlock that has hitherto been a nightmare for motorists, Channels TV reports.
The road was closed in September 2019 following the federal government's decision to carryout some palliative repairs leading to serious untold torment for both commercial and private drivers who were forced to be on the expressway for long hours.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that Governor Seyi Makinde-led government in Oyo state said it had deployed 100 traffic managers to the Lagos-Ibadan expressway to direct traffic and make the road less congested for users as rehabilitation of the road started on Monday, September 2.
Legit.ng's regional reporter in Ibadan, Ridwan Kolawole, reports that the executive chairman, Oyo State Road Traffic Management Authority (OYRTMA), Akin Fagbemi, made the disclosure on Monday, September 2, in Ibadan, while briefing journalists on the efforts of the state government to ease the burden of travelers using the major highway.
Lagos-Ibadan expressway had been described as the only road connecting the seaport and the international airport in Lagos to the rest of the country and had suffered neglect in the last ten years.
