The Lagos State Government has assured residents of the State that massive road construction and rehabilitation would commence as soon as the rains subside.

The government listed some of the critical roads to be constructed urgently after the rains to include Lagos-Badagry Expressway, Agege Pen-Cinema Fly-over, Agric/Ishawo Road, Ojokoro Phases I & II and Command/Ejigbo NNPC, among others.

Special Adviser to the Governor on Works and Infrastructure, Engr. Aramide Adeyoye gave the assurance when members of ‘Made in Lagos Group’, a socio-political Women Group paid her a courtesy visit on Friday.

Adeyoye, who noted that the government was not unaware of the deplorable state of some roads in Lagos, added that major construction work could not be embarked upon during the rainy season to avoid wastage of resources.

She, however, pleaded with Lagosians to show more understanding and continue to support the State Government in the drive to adopt a scientific approach in improving road infrastructure.

The Special Adviser commended the women group for identifying with the THEMES agenda of the present administration, charging them to help members acquire skills, identify talents among the youth population who require assistance in actualising their dreams as well as come up with initiatives that would make them more relevant and contribute meaningfully to good governance.
