Gridlock on Apapa-Oshodi expressway, which appeared to have relaxed towards the end of last year, is back with intense hardship for road users, following haphazard construction works by Hitech Construction Company, the sub-contractor handling the reconstruction of the dilapidated expressway.
The construction company, currently working on Section 2 of the expressway, which is between Sunrise and Cele Bus stops, has worsened traffic nightmare on the highway by demarcating and barricading the service lanes of the dual carriageway, which serve as access roads to people’s destinations.
Because they are working on service lanes at both sides of the expressway, they have compelled motorists and other road users to make use of the dual carriageway, irrespective of one’s destination.
motorists heading towards Lagos-Badagry expressway cannot access it through the access road at Mile 2, because it has been barricaded. It is the same situation with those who are going to Kirikiri town and Kirikiri Canal axis. The access road to these places has been barricaded, forcing people to rigmarole distances to access their offices and business places.
