Spokesperson for FAAN, Mrs. Henrietta Yakubu told journalists  that the project would last 15 months and that it is aimed at expanding the road for better service to users.
She said, specifically, the design of the project includes the reconstruction and expansion of the existing carriage to three-lane Expressway on both directions, construction of two-lane Service Road in both directions, construction of Ramp Bridge to provide a U-turn from Ajao Estate to Airport, construction of a flyover at NAHCO/Toll Gate and drainage works.

Others include the removal of existing Pedestrian Bridge at Ajao Estate and construction of Pedestrian Bridges at Ajao Estate and NAHCO/Hajj Camp, construction of Slip Road to provide access to Ajao Estate, construction of Lay-bys and installation of Street Lights, among others.

“We are appealing for understanding from all while the project last. FAAN also urges passengers and other airport users plying the road to always leave their homes earlier than usual, so as to be able to get to the airport in good time and also avoid missing their flights,” Yakubu said.
“Security agencies and other traffic officers have been mobilized to ensure that road users and passengers have relatively hitch free passage while the road is under construction. FAAN in conjunction with the Lagos State Government, has put in place necessary measures to mitigate the effect of the construction on the road users while the project last,” the statement added.
