Construction giant, Julius Berger has commenced the construction of a 5-lane Lagos-Abeokuta expressway, which will begin around Abule Egba, through to Abeokuta, capital of Ogun state.
Our correspondent, who travelled the entire length of the expressway on Today, Friday, observed that some houses, banks, eateries, hotels, fuel stations, and other building on both sides of the expressway, have been marked for demolition
One of the construction workers at Owode busstop told our correspondent off record, while marking portions of the expressway that the project could be completed in 8-years.
However, a presidency source told our correspondent that this is one of the two projects President Muhammad Buhari as approved, as he was merely busy completing the many projects initiated by former President Goodluck Jonathan.
More details later.
