Regional Road project, Lekki-Ajah takes off in May – Sanwo-Olu
Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has revealed that the construction of the long proposed Regional Road in Lekki-Ajah axis of Eti-Osa Local Government will take off before the end of May.
The governor disclosed that plans had been concluded to mobilise contractors to site, though there was need to remodel the design and alignment for the road to reclaim the right-of-way already encroached on by property developers along the corridor.
Sanwo-Olu made this known, yesterday, while on inspection tour of the Regional Road alignment. He was accompanied on the tour by his deputy, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat, Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Dr. Idris Salako, Special Adviser on Works and Infrastructure, Mrs. Aramide Adeyoye, her counterpart in Drainage Services, Mr. Joe Igbokwe, and Senior Special Assistant (SSA) to the Governor on Survey, Ola Odulate, among others.
It was the second time the governor would go round the alignment of the 9.3 kilometre-long, 45 metres wide road, which he described as strategic in the implementation of Lekki Masterplan Development.
After its completion, Sanwo-Olu said the road would not only bring traffic relief to commuters plying Lekki axis, but also improves the quality of life for residents.
