The engineer said more warning signs and crash barriers had been deployed to the highway to ensure free flow of traffic and check accidents.

“We will complete the repair of the long bridge by December 15 and we will complete all palliatives to make the road motorable before the Yuletide.


“The entire project is 32 per cent completed. We have done earthworks, laid asphalt and base course, done culverts and drains on various changes between Redeemed Camp and the Sagamu Interchange.
