The Lagos State government has commenced upgrading and rehabilitation of New Market/Camp, Davies/Ishefun and Aiyetoro roads, all in Alimosho area of Lagos.
Speaking at a stakeholders’ meeting with community leaders at the weekend, Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Ganiyu Johnson, an engineer, while giving the assurance that government would target a 12-month completion of the project, urged the residents to cooperate with the contractor in the course of the execution.
According to him, the project would offer job opportunity to artisans, while suppliers would also receive patronage from the contractor in return. “Rehabilitation/upgrading of New Market/camp Davies/Ishefun section, which is 5.9km in length connects the newly completed Ipaja Ayobo Road to Ishefun Town and Camp Davies Village.
“Rehabilitation/upgrading of Aiyetoro road is a border road linking Lagos with Ogun State. It is a one-kilometre earth road, which for many years, has been characterised by gullies and craters, thereby impeding vehicular movement. The road is upgraded to a dual carriageway to include the construction of a new bridge.
“All the projects are aimed at improving road connectivity, thus reducing traffic gridlock and travel time along the axis. These will improve the living standards of the residents and the socio- economic activities in the axis,” he noted.

He promised that the Idimu-Ejigbo Road and the ongoing Abule Egba flyover bridge would soon be delivered in record time because the governor has the best interests of the people at heart.
