In addition to this, construction of the Lekki Regional road will also commence within the next seven months.

According to Lagos State commissioner on Works and Infrastructure, Engr. Aramide Adeyoye, she stated this in one year anniversary of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s government. She stated that the government has completed and commissioned 37 roads projects, in addition to repairs and sectional rehabilitation works done on more than 354 roads across the metropolis.

Engr. Adeyoye, who disclosed this during the Y2020 Ministerial Press briefing organised by the State Government to commemorate its first anniversary, noted that ongoing landmark projects, such as Agege-Pen Cinema, Agric-Ishawo Road and the Lagos-Badagry Expressway would soon be added to the list.

The Fourth Mainland Bridge is a proposed 38 km long bridge by the Lagos State Government, Nigeria, connecting Lagos Island by way of Lekki, Langbasa, and Baiyeku towns and across Lagos Lagoon to Itamaga, in Ikorodu. The idea was conceptualized by the government of Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, former governor of Lagos state. Construction is planned to commence in 2017 and be complete by 2019 but had not been started as of April 13, 2020. The project will cost the state an estimated sum of ₦844 billion in 2017 budget.

Speaking further, the Special Adviser said, in re-affirmation of the current administration’s commitment to promoting inter-modal transportation and tourism in Badagry, it has completed the construction of Iworo-Ajido and Epeme Roads phases 1 and 2, adding that the 6.65km two-lane single carriageway with a 300m bridge of 9m width, which was constructed by CCECC, is ready for commissioning soon.

Adeyoye further stated that the present government also flagged-off the infrastructural upgrade of Oniru network of roads, namely Muri-Okunola Extension, Ligali Ayorinde and Akin Olugbade, along with seven major junctions all in Iru-Victoria Island Local Council Development Area, in December 2019, under a Public Infrastructure Improvement Partnership (PIIP). She expressed optimism that the projects, on completion, will mitigate the traffic gridlock associated with the corridor and improve connectivity.

“Despite the present health cum economic challenges facing the world, Lagosians should expect commencement of more projects such as the 10 km long Lekki Regional Road which spans Victoria Garden City Scheme 1, connects VGC, Ikate Elegushi, Ikota, Chevron Drive, Ajiran, Pinnock Beach Estate, Gracefield Island and Orange Island, up to Freedom Road to Freedom Way at Lekki”, the Special Adviser assured.

She explained that the roads, upon completion would serve as an alternative to the Lekki-Epe Expressway, which is already congested and is currently the only road serving the Lekki sub-region which connects directly to the Osborne/Third Mainland bridge corridor.
