Developed nations like U.S, U.K,France and South Africa have sophisticated road network Infrastructure.
Nigeria an emerging economic power is also determined to develop its infrastructure to reposition itself as a major player in the global affairs.
One of the Symbols of its infrastructure Lagos-Ibadan expressway is in a deplorable state.
Constructed in 1978, the road has experienced various carnage, traffic gridlock and accidents due to neglect.
