The Federal Controller of Works, Lagos, Mr Adedamola Kuti, has revealed that, the barricade around Kara Bridge would be removed tomorrow, the first day of December, 2019 to curtail the traffic situation around that area.
Kuti revealed that, construction work had been completed on that part of the road stating that, when the contractors return to the site in January, construction work will commence on the outbound-Lagos traffic side of the road.
“Now that inbound has been completed, we don’t want to start work on the outbound and leave it halfway, so we decided to open the road to commuters tomorrow, so that people can move freely this Christmas,” Kuti said.
Recall that, the contractor on section 1 of the road, Julius Berger, diverted both inbound and outbound traffic to one side of the road on September 2, when reconstruction of that part of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway commenced. We anticipate for the best ahead of the celebration season.
