Sanwo-Olu flags off construction of regional roads in Eti-Osa
Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has flagged off the construction of the long-awaited Regional Road in Lekki area- a critical infrastructure proposed in the Lekki-Epe master plan, aimed at decongesting traffic gridlocks in the entire Eti Osa Local Council Area.
At the ceremony held at the project site, the governor described the development as a manifestation of his administration’s commitment towards improving socio-economic activities on the Lekki-Epe axis by the provision of supporting infrastructure.
The construction of the 8.75 kilometre-long road, being undertaken by Messrs Hi-Tech Construction Company Limited, will link Lekki-Epe Expressway at Victoria Garden City (VGC) Junction to the Freedom Way in Eti Osa. The road is also said to be a precursor to the proposed Fourth Mainland Bridge that is expected to take off from the axis.
When completed in the next 24 months, Sanwo-Olu said the Regional Road would not only change the entire landscape of Eti Osa and improve journey time for commuters, but also drive up the efficiency of government’s traffic management strategy.
The Special Adviser to the Governor on Works and Infrastructure, Mrs. Aramide Adeyoye, said the Regional Road remains strategic to addressing the infrastructural need of the Lekki sub-region, as the state’s new economic centre.
