Groundbreaking ceremony of Fourth Mainland Bridge coming soon—Sanwo-Olu
Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has restated his administration’s commitment to ensuring accelerated development in the state, saying he would soon perform the groundbreaking ceremony of the Fourth Mainland Bridge.
The governor also pledged to complete ongoing projects in the state so the people could enjoy more dividends of democracy. He spoke yesterday at the commissioning of the rehabilitated and reconstructed 2.5 kilometre Oba Sekumade Road as well as the strategic sectional rehabilitation of T. O. S Benson Road in Ikorodu local council of the state.
Sanwo-Olu thanked the people of the state for their support during the recent elections, adding that the Oba Sekumade Road was conceived by the Federal Government to provide access to the Ikorodu lighter terminal, Ebute Ipakodo, Ikorodu town, Ibese, Igbogbo and other communities within Ikorodu Division.
On her part, Special Adviser on Works and Infrastructure, Aramide Adeyoye, said the present administration decided to take action due to various complaints from commuters on the condition of the road coupled with the perennial flooding experience caused by inadequate drainage system in the area.
She further said the main goal of the projects, with duration of 14 months with many benefits, was to resolve the perennial flooding issues around Ogolonto, Omologede, Ipakodo and environs as well as promote effective intermodal and integrated system.
In their goodwill messages, stakeholders which included lawmakers and royal fathers in the area, thanked the governor for fulfilling his promises to the people of Lagos while pleading for other roads such as Agric-Ishawo Road to be included in roads that would be rehabilitated before the end of Sanwo-Olu’s administration.
