The Federal Road Safety Commission, FRSC, has informed the motoring public, of extension of rehabilitation work on the Lagos – Ibadan Expressway from the Magboro to Punch office section of the carriageway from next Monday twenty -first October to thirty -first January, 2020.
This is to enable the construction company Julius Berger to commence rehabilitation on the 1.3 kilometers stretch of the Expressway.
According to a statement by the Public Education Officer, Federal Road Safety Corps, Ogun State Command, Route Commander Florence Okpe, the rehabilitation would cause the temporary diversion of the Lagos bound traffic to the Sagamu bound carriageway from Magboro to Punch.
Motorists are therefore advised to plan their trips by allowing more time to their traveling time, in view of the construction work that would narrow the carriage way which may impair motorisation.
The FRSC reminded motorists to drive within the maximum speed limit of 50km per hour, prescribed by the National Road Traffic Regulations, 2012, as the maximum speed at construction zones, to avoid road traffic crashes.
It also enjoined motorists to observe lane discipline and avoid driving against traffic, as violators risk impoundment of their erring vehicles and liable to payment of fifty thousand (N50,000) naira traffic fine.
Motorists observing traffic emergencies are told to contact the FRSC toll free number 122.
