“We are working on various sections at the same time; we do that to manage traffic properly.”


The Engineer in charge of the reconstruction of the Oshodi/Apapa Expressway in Lagos, Adigom-Vivienne Aniagoh, on Saturday said that the project had reached 65 per cent completion.

Ms. Aniagoh told the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos that the contractor, Julius Berger, was working on various sections of the project simultaneously to facilitate completion.

“We are working on various sections at the same time; we do that to manage traffic properly.

“We can work on four, five, six locations or more at the same time because we have daily different work schedules.

“We are also doing some access culverts in about two locations; we tackle different work items in the contract at the same time.

“We are doing the drains; we are working from the end of the project at Cele Bus Stop, from the beginning at Beach Land.

“We are also working in the Mile 2 area; we are working in Sanya; so, we are working in different sections,’’ she said.

She explained that milling, stone base laying, construction of drainage channels, asphalting, grading, sand cement stabilization, and other works were going on concurrently.

She added that the work would continue in such a manner on both bounds.

Ms. Aniagoh, however, regretted that indiscriminate parking of articulated vehicles on the highway slowed down progress of work and caused heavy traffic.

She noted that the vehicles were waiting to carry petroleum products from Apapa.
