Lagos lists 87 roads for urgent repairs
Special Adviser, Lagos State Public Works Corporation and Drainage, Temidayo Erinle, stated yesterday that Governor Akinwunmi Ambode had directed the corporation to commence immediate rehabilitation of critical roads across the state.
He stressed that the roads mapped out for repair were presently in terrible states, and that the situation was impeding free flow of traffic.
“We have received quite a number of complaints from residents and motorists on the state of the roads and how it was directly affecting travel time which in turn has negative effect on the ease of doing business in the state.
“The governor has, therefore, directed the Public Works Corporation to move immediately and commence repair on those roads to ameliorate the traffic that residents have been going through as a result of the state of the roads,” he said.
Some of the roads captured for immediate repair are in Ikotun-Egbe, Ijegun, Alimosho and Dopemu, Aka-Kemberi, Amuwo Odofin, Marina Beach, Apapa, Olaniyi in Ifako Ijaiye, Acme-Oba Akran and Ikeja.
Also enlisted are Ijede and Sabo market roads in Ikorodu, Costain by Brewery, Glover, Herbert Macaulay in Mainland Council, Itire-Ogunlana drive intersection, Itire-Lawanson, Babs Animashaun in Surulere, Alakija/WAEC, Somolu, Obalende, Eti-Osa, among others.
Erinle, however, appealed to residents and motorists to bear with the state government, urging them to drive carefully while the roads are being fixed.
He assured that all the potholes would disappear on Lagos roads in the next few weeks.
