The Federal Government has appealed for the cooperation of road users as the Mile 2 to Tin-Can Island section of the Apapa-Oshodi-Ojota-Oworonsoki Expressway project undergoes 72 hours partial closure for rehabilitation.
Mr. Funso Adebiyi, Director, Federal Highways, South West, made the appeal during an inspection of the road in Lagos.
Adebiyi said that heavy rainfall slowed down rehabilitation works on Apapa roads. He said it resulted in terrible road degeneration, causing accidents. .
The director said that palliative work had begun on the highway with the rains ending, and the Ministry of Works and Housing had secured the commitment of truck drivers to leave the highway for repair works.
