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 on Channels Television‘s ‘Sunday Politics’, Fashola said three toll plazas were expected on the highway after all works on the expressway have been completed by December 2022.
Fashola said a toll gate is expected in the Lagos, Ogun (Ogere) and Ibadan axis of the expressway when completed.
The minister also unveiled the government’s plan towards 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 opened. That was the last meeting I had with the contractor about three weeks ago.”
