FERMA Begins Rehabilitation of Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway

The days of snarling traffic jams might just be over as the Federal Roads Maintenance Agency (FERMA) has commenced repair of bad sections on Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway.

It was gathered that repairs were ongoing on both bounds of the carriageway and the road was being graded between Pako and Adealu bus stops, while the earth and median drains were also being evacuated.

FERMA engineer in charge of Lagos West, Kehinde Afolabi explained that the section had been failing due to pressure caused by a temporary ‘U-turn’ created on the section two years ago.

Afolabi explained that some auxiliary drains were blocked when the state government created the diversion to help ease traffic when Dopemu and Iyana Ipaja flyovers were rehabilitated in 2013.

He also said the road needed concrete reinforced drainage channels as earth drains constructed on the highway over 30 years ago had become inadequate due to population increase along the highway, adding that the median drains were being cleared and the road reinstated pending award of contract for major repairs of the road.
