LAGOS – The Director, Federal Highways, South West Zone, Mr John Ibe, on Sunday said adequate measures had been put in place to ensure roads were smooth and safe during the Yuletide.
Ibe told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that bad roads were being rehabilitated and that security had been beefed up in the South West.
He explained that the Federal Roads Committee on Surveillance and Action against Road Abuse (FERCSARA) had been briefed to ensure the safety of road users.
Ibe added that they had already swung into action.
He said that the Federal Roads Safety Corps (FRSC), as well as the Police, who are members of the FERCSARA team, had been deployed to work 24 hours on the major highways.
The director said that the FRSC were also on ground, to effectively manage traffic and clear obstructions.
“We are doing serious maintenance work on these routes from Lagos to Ibadan and from Sagamu to Ajibandele on the existing carriageway.
“Both carriage ways would be opened up during this period and the areas that have been constructed would be opened up and we would have free flow of traffic.
“We are working day and night to make the roads motorable; the Ondo/Akure road is okay, I was there two weeks ago.
“Adequate arrangement has been put in place; a towing van is on the Lagos end and the Ibadan end, as well as Sagamu on the Lagos/Ibadan Expressway.
“These are the three most serious arterial routes that are normally very busy during the Yuletide,“ he said.
Ibe said that bad spots were currently being repaired at Sango on the Lagos/Abeokuta Expressway.
He added that all critical portions on various highways in the zone were also being repaired. (NAN)
