As part of activities marking the Lagos@50 celebrations, Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode has commissioned Ijegun-Isheri- Osun-Isolo road project on Wednesday with the aim of increasing connectivity along the axis and decongest traffic at the ever busy Ikotun junction.
The road, which is fully completed with a dual carriageway, drainage systems on both sides of the two bridges at Isheri Oshun and Ailegun junction, service/lane ducts and street lighting, was said to have been in the most terrible state before Government’s intervention.
Commissioning the 6,500m long and average width of 20.350m road project, Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode said the project was also designed to significantly decongest and represent a viable alternative route for people of Ijegun, Ijeododo and Isheri Oshun to link Apapa-Oworonshoki Expressway through Jakande Estate.
Governor Ambode, represented by the Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Tpl. Wasiu Anifowose, said the delivery of the road project was part of the efforts of the present administration to ease movement of people from one point to the other within the State.
He noted that the State government has remained focused on the promise to provide good governance and make life more comfortable for the people.
