The last phase of the entire Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, both inward and outward sections has started and will be completed on or before December 2022, Federal Ministry of Works and Housing, Adedamola Kuti, has said.

He further stated that the increasing traffic congestion on the main road will stop by the end of the expressway’s construction. Kuti, in an interview originally reported in Punch , also gave reasons why the traffic congestion is increasing on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway. 

He said that people should know the expressway is one of the busiest highways in West Africa and the current increase of traffic congestion is understandable because the road is under reconstruction at the same time it is used by pedestrians and motorists.

The Minister further elaborated that you can’t speed in construction zone, and 30km/h is the only allowable speed. But you can’t get that 30km/h now because of broken down vehicles, sometimes at the diversion area. This is caused by aggressive drivers and inattentive or distracted driving which usually leads to accidents.
