The federal government has said all diversions around construction zones on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway will be opened to motorists from December 15.
The director of the federal highways, south-west, Mr Funso Adebiyi, made this known during his interaction with truck drivers in Ogere, Ogun state.
Adebiyi said the decision was to ensure free flow of traffic during the christmas period, adding that work would resume after the season.
The director who also ordered truck drivers to either relocate or move backwards by at least 50 metres from the construction zone, asserted that the activities of the truck drivers have made the reconstruction of some sections of the road almost impossible.
Meanwhile, the Ogun state sector commander of the federal road safety corps, Clement Oladele, said the corps was ready to apply force if the truck drivers failed to obey the directives.
