Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has launched four critical road projects in the Agbado-Oke Odo Local Council Development Area of the state to bring relief for road users from the Lagos boundary communities into Ogun State.
A statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile, titled ‘Sanwo-Olu Fulfils Promise in Alimosho, Commissions Flyover, Four Road Projects in Agbado Oke-Odo,’ on Friday, said Sanwo-Olu fulfilled yet another promise to the people of Alimosho, with the completion of the Phase II of Lagos-Ogun Boundary Road project by the state government.
The newly constructed road network, totalling 6.26km, includes Old Otta Road, Adekoya Road, Makinde Road and Suberu Oje Road. Each project is a dual carriageway with reinforced concrete drains and walkways.
Sanwo-Olu also opened a 120m-long bridge linking the boundary communities to Otta, Ogun State, as well as the remodelled Abesan Youth Centre constructed in Mosan-Okunola LCDA by the Ministry of Youth and Social Development.
Throngs of Agbado Oke-Odo residents were said to have received the governor and members of his cabinet.
Sanwo-Olu said the road projects were conceived with the goal to provide alternative routes to Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway and ease vehicular flow between the two states.
He added that the new infrastructure would complement the network of 21 roads and two bridges already delivered in the first phase of the projects by the last administration.
The new roads, according to him, are also designed to abate perennial flooding in the area, while the roads will enhance traffic connectivity and shorten distance, reducing man-hours lost in traffic and the stress of commuting along the Old Abeokuta Expressway.
