The Lagos State Government has reassured residents of the timely completion of the Lekki-Epe Expressway with advice to motorists to obey the traffic signs at the construction site.
Special Adviser on Works and Infrastructure, Aramide Adeyoye made the statement on Thursday after visiting the Awoyaya Axis of the Epe Expressway together with several stakeholders like Craneburg Construction, Lekki Estate Resident Association (LERSA) and others, in response to the complainant about the ongoing construction work on the expressway (from Eleko to Abraham Adesanya).
Adeyoye said the Lagos State government is aware of commuters and residents’ pains but is set to replicate the feat from 18 kilometres of Phase I of the Lekki -Epe Expressway, from Eleko Junction to Epe, which is 95% completed, by delivering one kilometre per month on the 16 kilometres, Phase II of the project, which is from Eleko Junction to Abraham Adesanya.
“We want to reassure our citizens that the government of Lagos State is assiduously working at improving their lives. Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has done a lot in the delivery of dividends of democracy to the people of Lagos State and our works are visible in all parts of the state”.
On his part, the Chairman Infrastructure Committee of the Lekki Estates Residents and Stakeholders Association (LERSA), Suleiman Bello pledged continued collaboration with the state government to ensure coordinated traffic management on the Lekki/Epe Expressway Corridor as the project progresses.
