The jetties under construction include VIP Chalet, Badagry; Apa Waterfront, Baiyeku Waterfront, Offin Waterfront, Isalu-Ajido, Badagry; Liado Waterfront, Amuwo-Odofin; Ilashe-Ojo Waterfront, Ito Omu Waterfront, Epe; and Takwa Bay Island. He said the jetties are are at various stages of completion. 
On channelisation of four new ferry routes, Adejare said the project was conceived to improve water transportation, adding that it would be completed with new ferries already ordered by the state government to convey people through the waterways.
According to him, “the four channelization projects are at various stages of completion and are progressing satisfactorily with Ijede-Badore route at 40 per cent, Baiyeku-Ajah route at 70 per cent, Ebute Ojo-Marina at 60 per cent, and Ijede-Marina at 35 per cent completion.”
