Lagos begins rehabilitation of Ojota Interchange/Kudirat Abiola Junction

The Lagos State Government on Monday said it had mobilized construction giant, Julius Berger, to site to begin repair of failed portions of two roads causing gridlock on Ikorodu Road.
The Special Adviser to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Works and Infrastructure, Aramide Adeyoye, said this in a statement by Adesegun Ogundeji, Deputy Director, Public Affairs in the ministry.
Adeyoye said repair of the Ojota Interchange to Kudirat Abiola Junction would ease gridlock.
She said the stretch of the road both inward and outward Lagos had defied palliative measures over time.
The SA said the perennial traffic on Ikorodu Road caused by the failed portions between Ojota Interchange and Kudirat Abiola Junction would soon be over.
According to her, the time is ripe to address all the challenges once and for all to bring succour to Lagos residents.
She appealed for understanding of motorists as traffic was bound to be slow on the affected corridors.
Adeyoye said effective traffic management architecture was in place to reduce congestion during repairs to the barest minimum.
She explained that adequate diversion signs and traffic officers had been deployed to the construction zone to reduce hardship and appealed for cooperation of road users and the general public.
