The timeline for the completion of the Apapa-Oshodi-Ojota- Oworonsoki expressway project has been announced by the Federal Government as December 2021.
Recall that the reconstruction/rehabilitation of the expressway was inaugurated by President Muhammadu Buhari in November 2018, towards resolving the Apapa traffic gridlock.
The Federal Controller of Works in Lagos, Mr. Olukayode Popoola, made the disclosure during a joint inspection with the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) on Saturday.
According to him, the section one of the project would be completed within three weeks and thereafter, open for use.
Popoola also added that the rehabilitation works, which have been divided into four sections to ease port congestion and gridlock at the Apapa axis, had section one, which spans from Liverpool Roundabout through Creek Road to Beachland near Sunrise and is about 10 km, while section two is 8.4 km and spans from Beachland to Cele Bus Stop.
At the inspection was the Managing Director of NPA, Hadiza Usman, and Hitech Construction Company, the sub-contractor handling the project on behalf of Dangote Group.
