Traffic congestion: Sanwo-Olu commissions 31 road network in Ojokoro LCDA, Ifako-Ijaiye LG

Benjamin Omoike

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Monday commissioned 31 network of roads totalling 20.216km in Ojokoro Local Council Development Area, (LCDA) in Ifako-Ijaiye Local Government Area. 

Speaking at the commissioning which took place at four different locations in the LCDA, Sanwo-Olu said, “good road network facilitates effective management of traffic and transport thereby boosting the socio-economic activities of the State; it reduces traffic induced health challenges and travel time to access health facilities and educational institutions. 

The governor said the drainages that come with the roads help to de-flood the environment while the streetlights complement the security architecture of the State. 

According to him, the provision of road infrastructure is central to the delivery of the THEMES Agenda of his administration, adding that “it is common knowledge that tourism and entertainment are better appreciated and attract more people when access to the venue is relatively stress-free. 

“To this extent the prioritization of infrastructure especially, road, rail, and water transportation facilities is predicated on its multiplier effect and direct relationship to other pillars of the THEMES agenda.” 

The governor said, Ojokoro LCDA is a strategic settlement with a fast growing population and huge need for infrastructural renewal and that the 31 network of roads commissioned was specifically executed to offer traffic relief to the rapidly developing area, improve the socio-economic activities and connectivity within the axis and its neighbouring Ogun state through Segun Adetiba Road and the bridge across Ilo River. The completion of the network of roads will also complement other completed roads within Ojokoro LCDA.” 

“The network of roads will help unlock perennial traffic gridlock along Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway with resultant reduction in travel time along the corridor. Prior to embarking on these projects, traffic on the road had grown tremendously considering the high rate of the population growth and its attendant vehicular density.” 

He promised that despite the various commitments of his government, “we shall find the most effective ways to ensure that this axis gets due attention. We will do more roads and many projects in other sectors for the benefit of Ojokoro and Lagos in general”. 

The governor urged the residents to take ownership of the roads and ensure that the projects are used judiciously because they have been put in place with their commonwealth. 

“We have to understand that challenge to sustainable infrastructure is beyond quality of job but include vandalism of road furniture and public utilities by indiscriminate dumping of refuse on roads and drainages, activities of roadside mechanics and axle overload on inner roads among others”. 

He urged all community/religious leaders and the people of Ojokoro and others that will ply the roads to guard jealously the infrastructure and those that would be provided in the near future. 

In his welcome address earlier, Special Adviser to the Governor on Works and Infrastructure, Engr. Aramide Adeyoye said the commissioning of the roads is a testimony to the fact that Lagos state government have robust plan for the development of the area and that “we are truthful to our vow to do things positively and differently. 

“It lends credence to our commitment to complete all projects left behind by our predecessors and embark on new projects that will enhance our greater Lagos journey. 

The roads, she said are connected to each other , help to ease traffic logjam and also help save travel time to its bearest minimum, improve road connectivity within the environs. 

Adding that, “the strategic network of roads are complete with reinforced concrete drains, cover slabs and walkways on both sides of the road, some of them also have cross culverts and outfalls drains at some specific locations of the local government. There are also lay bys and some major parts of the areas also have some major public utilities such as electric poles, transformers and streetlights with power generating sets. 

“The Street lightings have already impacted positively on security, night life and the 24 hour economy of this area is receiving a boost.
