The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, while speaking during an interview on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics on July 24, 2022 said the Federal Government will return toll gates to the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway upon completion of the rehabilitation of the highway.
The Minister said about three toll plazas were expected on the highway after all works on the expressway have been completed.
The former governor of Lagos State projected that the rehabilitation of the road would be completed by December 2022.
Fashola noted that at least a toll gate is expected in the Lagos, Ogun (Ogere) and Ibadan axis of the expressway when completed.
While emphasizing that the Oyo State government is constructing a drainage facility around the Ojoo part of the expressway, which, according to him, had significantly slowed down the pace of work in that area, Fashola said he is optimistic that the work can be finished before the year runs out, as talks are already being held with the Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, to resolve the challenge.
