FRSC, in a statement made available to the public explained that the temporary closure will affect only the Ibadan-bound carriageway of the expressway from Magboro to Kara and Ibafo.The statement added that the three-day closure is to enable Julius Berger lay asphalt on the road.

“This is to inform the motoring public that Julius Berger Nigeria PLC, currently rehabilitating the Lagos–Ibadan Expressway, would be temporarily closing only the Ibadan bound carriageway from Magboro to Kara and Ibafo, scheduled to commence from Wednesday, 22 May, 2019 and reopened on Friday, 24 May, 2019.”

“The closure would not affect traffic inbound Lagos around the affected road, but would narrow the carriageway which is expected to build up traffic around the mentioned sections,” the statement read in part.

The FRSC Sector Commander, Clement Oladele, therefore advised motorists to note the development and plan their trips.

Oladele warned those using the corridor within the period to obey all traffic rules and regulations, including refraining from driving against traffic, as violators are liable to be apprehended for dangerous driving which attracts the fine of fifty thousand naira (N50,000) and impoundment of the erring vehicle.
