Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has approved the construction of flyover for two of the state’s high-density traffic zones, Ajah round about and Abule-Egba junction.
A statement by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr Steve Ayorinde, said the two projects were approved by the State Executive Council and had been duly awarded to contractors for immediate action.
He said the projects would be completed within 16 months as part of the governor’s ongoing road infrastructure projects across the state. He said the Ajah round about would be undertaken simultaneously with the rehabilitation of Freedom Road in Lekki.
According to him, the Ajah flyover would have a solar-powered signalised intersection to ease traffic.
He added that the upgrade of Freedom Road would ease traffic considerably for vehicles using the Third Roundabout to connect Lekki through the Admiralty Way.
“The construction of the reinforced concrete dual-carriage flyover bridge at Abule Egba junction will equally bring succour to millions of commuters using the Lagos -Abeokuta Expressway daily when completed,” he said.
Ayorinde said the Abule -Egba flyover would also have signalised intersection under it to service Oko-Oba and other link roads within the axis.
He said that the state government had also awarded contracts for the rehabilitation and upgrade of strategic arterial/inner roads in Epe Local Government Area of the state.
