The Federal Executive Council (FEC) has approved the contract for the rehabilitation of the dilapidated Lagos-Badagry Expressway.
The road had been in a terrible state for a long time as the Lagos State Government failed to carry out full work on the road after it promised to convert it to a 10-lane expressway.
However, succor has come the way of residents and business owners in the axis as the government has approved the contract for the road.
The development was announced by the Federal Government’s twitter handle @Asorock yesterday, Wednesday, October 24, 2018.
“FEC today approved a contract for the rehabilitation of the Lagos-Badagry Expressway, specifically the 46km Section from Agbara-Badagry-Seme Border. (The repair of the section from Eric Moore to Okokomaiko is being carried out by the Lagos State Govt),” the tweet read.
In addition, the Minister of Finance, Zainab Ahmed disclosed that N460 billion had been released from 2018 Capital budget, as of September 2018.
