The Lagos State Government has begun immediate repairs of potholes
across the State, with over 87 major roads enlisted for intervention.

Special Adviser, Lagos State Public Works Corporation and Drainage,
Engr. Temidayo Erinle, in a statement on Friday, said the State
Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, had directed that the Corporation should
commence immediate rehabilitation of critical roads across the State.

He said the roads mapped out for repair were presently in terrible
state, and that the situation was impeding free flow of traffic in
those areas with its attendant consequences.

“We have received quite a number of complaints from residents and
motorists on the State of the roads and how it was directly affecting
travel time which in turn has negative effects on the ease of doing
business in the State.

“The Governor has therefore directed the Public Works Corporation to
move immediately and commence repair on those roads to ameliorate the
traffic that residents have been going through as a result of the
State of the roads,” he said.

Erinle, however, appealed to residents and motorists to bear with the
State Government, urging them to drive carefully while the roads are
being fixed.

He assured that in the next few weeks, all the potholes would
disappear on Lagos roads.

Some of the roads captured for immediate repair include Ikotun-Egbe,
Ijegun Roads, Alimosho and Dopemu Roads, Aka-Kemberi Road, Amuwo
Odofin, Marina Beach Road, Apapa, Olaniyi Road in Ifako Ijaiye,
Acme-Oba Akran Road and Ikeja.

Other roads include Ijede Road, Sabo market Road in Ikorodu, Costain
Road by Brewery, Glover Road, Herbert Macaulay Road in Mainland Local
Government, Itire-Ogunlana drive intersection, Itire-Lawanson, Babs
Animashaun Road in Surulere, Alakija/WAEC Road, Somolu, Obalende Road,
