Road Network News #Update



Lagos state Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode emphasized that one major priority of his administration is the commitment to making the state economically viable by connecting roads in ikorodu and Epe to the neighboring states. The roads that would be linked include Mile 2 to Badagry, Seme border in Nigeria and thereby linking Nigeria to Neighboring countries.

This was announced by the governor in a meeting with the News Agency of Nigeria after he had inspected the 7.5 kilometre Agric-Owutu -Ishawo Road project in Ikorodu area of the state. He pledged that the road would be delivered in April 2019 with plans to extend the road by another 5.5 kilometers from the Lagos State boundary to Arepo in Ogun. Ambode added that the need to link the state through road network would be replicated at Lagos-Epe Road.

He added that the Lagos-Epe Road will be linked with the Ijebu-ode/Ore Road from Epe boundary in Mojoda.

“In order for us to improve on the economic integration of the South western states, we will extend the road network from Lagos State boundary to Arepo in Ogun.

“We will also extend it by 5.5 kilometres to link it with the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

“The Lagos-Epe Road will also be done to link the boundary of the state in Epe axis at Mojoda with the Ijebu-Ode /Ore Road.

“The state government will do same with the Mile 2/Okokomaiko Expressway as it will award the contract that will link Okokomaiko to Seme border,” he said.

Ambode added that this would improve the economy of Lagos State and ensure that residents in the suburb were comfortable. He urged the residents to exercise patience while the project he mentioned lasted. The governor said that in addition to good roads, the state government was planning other developments like cinema, shopping mall and recreational parks for the axis.

“Our people will need to exercise patience and bear with us, all inconveniences will be curbed as soon as the project is completed. Lagosians should believe in the rational idea that Lagos is and will remain the best in terms of developmental growth,”
