LAGOS STATE GOVERNMENT APPROVES FLYOVER BRIDGE FOR AJAH AXIS AND ABULE EGBA
The Lagos State Government has approved the construction of flyover bridges for two of the State’s high-density traffic areas – the Ajah round about and the Abule-Egba junction. Upon the approval by the State’s Executive Council, the contracts have been duly awarded to contractors for speedy commencement and delivery.
The proposed timeline for the project from start to finish is estimated to be 16 months as stated in a press release issued by Steve Ayorinde, the state’s Commissioner for Information and Strategy on the 13th December, 2015. It was stated therein that the construction of the reinforced concrete flyover and signalized intersection at the Ajah roundabout will be undertaken simultaneously with the rehabilitation of Freedom Road in Lekki with a view to reducing the heavy traffic being recorded at the Ajah round-about and the Lekki-Ikoyi axis. He said the Ajah flyover bridge will have a solar-powered signalized intersection in order to greatly improve traffic while the upgrade on the Freedom road is expected to ease traffic considerably for vehicles using the 3rd roundabout to connect Lekki through Admiralty Way.
While the Ajah project will ease movement of residents and commuters on the Lagos Island - Ibeju Lekki areas, the construction of the reinforced concrete dual-carriage flyover bridge at Abule Egba junction will equally bring joy and relief to millions of commuters that use the Lagos -Abeokuta Expressway in Ifako-Ijaye Local Government Area of the State on a daily basis when completed. Like the Ajah project, Ayorinde said the Abule Egba flyover bridge will also have signalised intersection under it to service Oko-Oba and other link roads within the axis.
