The former governor of Lagos State and the Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has said the Federal Government will return toll gates to the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway after the highway is rehabilitated.
Speaking with the Journalists on Sunday Fashola said three toll plazas were expected on the highway after all works on the expressway have been completed by December 2022.
The former governor said a toll gate is expected in the Lagos, Ogun (Ogere), and Ibadan axis of the expressway when completed.
He also unveiled the government’s plan toward finishing the Second Niger Bridge project in the South-Eastern part of the country.
Fashola said the current administration also plans to open the bridge before Christmas, despite the challenges facing the project.
“We are planning also before Christmas to open that to the public for use because that is when there is a large movement.
“Hopefully, by Christmas, it will be open. That was the last meeting I had with the contractor about three weeks ago.”
