President-Goodluck-Jonathan-for-the-revocation-of-Lagos-Ibadan-Expressway-contract.-600x450The Minister of Works, Mr. Mike Onolememen, on Tuesday said President Goodluck Jonathan, would on Friday launch the reconstruction of the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

Onolememen announced the planned inauguration by the President at a meeting with a delegation of the Association of Luxury Bus Owners of Nigeria (ALBON) in Abuja.

The News Agency of Nigeria recalls that the concession of the 178-kilometre road, which was granted Bi-Courtney Highway Services Limited, was earlier this year terminated by the Federal Government.

The Government had alleged that the company failed to honour the terms of the concession agreement.

A fresh contract for the reconstruction of the expressway was subsequently awarded to Julius Berger Nigeria Plc for the Lagos – Shagamu interchange end of the expressway.

RCC Nigeria Limited is also expected to handle the Shagamu – Ibadan axis of the expressway.

The minister said the project had been awarded and the government was ready to see it completed in record time.

“The Lagos/Ibadan Expressway project as you know has been awarded and work will soon commence on it.

“However, may I use this opportunity to let you know that President Goodluck Jonathan will inaugurate the reconstruction.”
