Ogun to maintain Abeokuta-Sagamu road
Ogun State Government has reiterated its commitment to ensuring that the Abeokuta-Sagamu road remains in good condition for motorists and other road users to ply.
The government also revealed plans to collaborate with truck owners and other stakeholders on the road. Lamenting the continuous deterioration of the road due to the pressure daily put on it by the increase in the number of heavy-duty trucks servicing the large number of quarries and housing estates in the area, the state government, in a statement by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Works, Ade Akinsanya, said it would continue to seek ways to maintain the road in spite of the huge financial implications to the state government.
According to the statement, there are currently about 30 quarries in Abeokuta, the state capital while not less than another 15 quarries operate along the Abeokuta Sagamu road.
