The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has said Federal Government is returning tolling to the Lagos-Ibadan highway upon completion of its rehabilitation .
Fashola made this disclosure while featuring on Channels Television’s ‘Sunday Politics’,he said about three toll plazas were expected on the highway.
While projecting the completion of the road rehabilitation to December 2022, the former governor of Lagos State said a toll plaza was expected each in the Lagos, Ogun (Ogere) and Ibadan parts of the road when completed.
On the December deadline for the completion of the road work, Fashola said there was a caveat to the realization of that promise.
He noted that the Oyo State government was constructing a drainage facility around the Ojoo part of the road, which, according to him, had significantly slowed down the pace of work in that area.
He, however, said he was already in talks with the Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, to resolve the challenge.
