Reprieve as Lagos begins palliative work on Ishawo Road
Reprieve yesterday came the way of residents and property owners in Agric, Ishawo, Konu and Asolo communities in Ikorodu West Local Council Development Area of Lagos State following the commencement of palliative works on the road.
Before now, commuting on the road had been a herculean task following the heavy downpours that damaged several portions, making the road impassable. The intervention of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, who recently mobilised the contractor handling the 7KM road project to do palliative works, has alleviated the problem on road.
Elated by the intervention, commuters and residents yesterday commended the governor for the initiative, stressing that it has helped to reduce the gridlock.
The commendations were made when a team of engineers from the Ministry of Works and Infrastructure led by the Permanent Secretary, Olujimi-Hotonu, went on an inspection visit to the road.
Speaking on behalf of the residents, secretary of the road committee, Ishawo Community Development Association (CDA), Mr. Abiodun Sunday, said the road was a tale of woes before the intervention. He recalled that the governor had during a visit to the affected communities promised to prioritize all the work projects in all the five administrative divisions of the state.
“This palliative works and the mobilization of Hi-Tech Construction Company back to site is an indication that the governor is a listening governor.”
On the project, the Permanent Secretary explained that the 13.6km road was awarded to Hitech Construction Company in 2017. He expressed satisfaction with the quality of job done adding that the road upon completion will serve as an alternative road to the present Ikorodu road.
