The Federal Government on Friday appealed for cooperation of road users as the Mile 2 to Tin-Can Island section of the Apapa-Oshodi-Ojota-Oworonsoki Expressway project undergoes 72 hours partial closure for rehabilitation.
Mr Funso Adebiyi, Director, Federal Highways, South West, made the appeal during an inspection of the road in Lagos.
Adebiyi said that heavy rainfall slowed down rehabilitation works on Apapa roads.
He said it resulted in terrible road degeneration, causing accidents.
The director said that palliative work had begun on the highway with the rains ending, and the Ministry of Works and Housing had secured commitment of truck drivers to leave the highway for repair works.
He said that the federal government was committed to the rehabilitation of roads across the nation, and the evidence was showing in massive construction after the rainy season.
“We are here partly to facilitate this work and to continue the palliative work here,’’ he said.
Adebiyi said that stakeholders, at a meeting on Thursday, reached an agreement to work in synergy toward freeing the highway for speedy rehabilitation of bad portions.
The director said that a 72-hour partial closure would begin, to ensure effective rehabilitation work on terrible portions causing hardship on the road.
