Construction giants, Julius Berger PLC and RCC, are back on site in continuation of the re-construction of the N167 billion Lagos-Ibadan expressway.
According to sources, the presence of workmen became more noticeable at the Redemption Camp and Arepo areas at the Lagos end of the road.
While palliative works were ongoing at the failed spots in the Redemption Camp area of the road, major construction work was being done at the Arepo area.
Julius Berger is handling Section One of the project, which stretches from Shagamu Inter-Change to Lagos, while RCC is in charge of Section Two, stretching from Shagamu Inter-Change to Ojoo, Ibadan.
The repair of the failed sections has greatly brought relief to motorists who now clamour for early completion of the road which is the busiest highway in the country.
