Road Network News #Update
Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, on Monday commissioned 21 network of roads and two bridges totalling 27.4 kilometre in Alimosho Local Government, with a pledge to further develop other communities within the axis.
The roads, which connect Lagos to Ogun State from Agbado Oke-Odo Local Council Development Area were fitted with walkways, drainage system, lay-bys, service ducts, lane marking and street lights, among others. Governor Ambode, who commissioned the projects amidst celebration by elated residents in four different locations, said the delivery of the infrastructure was part of the continuous bid to transform the Alimosho federal constituency and build new economy around the axis.
While describing the commissioning as historic and momentous, Governor Ambode particularly lauded the National Leader of All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu for activating the transformation of Alimosho when he was Governor of the State with the construction of LASU-Iba Road, and former Governor Babatunde Fashola for taking the project up to Ipaja. He said:
“What we are doing today is so historic and of great importance that we must send the message rightly so that people can understand why we are celebrating on Easter Monday the change in the life of our people which the resurrection of Christ symbolizes.”
He said the government was able to complete the projects using the taxes paid by the people, saying that it was the taxpayers that made it possible for his administration to improve on the economy and solve traffic challenges in the axis.
“The idea of the project is to open up all our suburban communities, reduce traffic congestion and then create better life for the people.” Governor Ambode said.
