Lagos State Gov. approves flyover bridges for Ajah, Abule Egba

Ambode-754x461Lagos State Government has approved the construc­tion of flyover bridges for two of the state’s high-density traffic zones – Ajah roundabout and Abule Egba junction. The two ma­jor projects were approved by the State’s Executive Council and have been duly awarded to contractors.

In a statement yesterday by Commissioner for In­formation and Strategy, Mr. Steve Ayorinde, the projects will be completed within 16 months.

The statement said the construction of the rein­forced concrete flyover and signalized intersection at Ajah roundabout will be undertaken simultaneously with the rehabilitation of Freedom Road in Lekki, with a view to reducing the heavy traffic being recorded at the roundabout and the Lekki/Ikoyi axis.

The commissioner said the Ajah Bridge would have a solar-powered signalised intersection to improve traf­fic, while the upgrade of Freedom Road is expected to ease traffic considerably for vehicles using the Third Roundabout to connect Le­kki through Admiralty Way.

While the Ajah project will ease movement of resi­dents and commuters on the Lagos Island – Ibeju Le­kki areas, the construction of the reinforced concrete dual-carriage flyover bridge at Abule Egba junction will equally bring joy and relief to millions of com­muters that use the Lagos -Abeokuta Expressway in Ifako-Ijaye Local Govern­ment Area of the state when completed. -The Sun
