Residents of Festac Extension, Mile 2 are unhappy about the slow progress of the rehabilitation of the bad portion of Alaba-Express by Hitech Construction company.
Residents said the construction has been ongoing for a month and it has become impossible to commute in private vehicles due to the roadblock on the motorway.
They commended the Federal Government for taking the initiative to fix the road, but they have now urged the government to hasten the completion of the road.
