Lagos State Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Engr. Ganiyu Johnson, has said that construction work is set to commence on two major roads, Okuta road and Deji Aladejobi street, in Bariga Area of the state.
The Commissioner, who stated this at a meeting held yesterday between the ministry and the residents/stakeholders on the rehabilitation and upgrading of the two roads, solicited for the cooperation and support of the residents in achieving the desired goal of transforming the infrastructural landscape of the area.
Engr. Johnson, represented by the Director, Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation, Engr. Saliu Adeyemi, said the State Government is investing heavily on the provision of roads through regular maintenance, rehabilitation, upgrading and reconstruction with the ultimate goal of opening the socio-economic potentials of the affected communities.
He stated further that the choice of the two roads followed the completion of Igi-Olugbin Street, coupled with the fact that their rehabilitation and upgrading will decongest the traffic in the area by serving as a major by-pass from Ikorodu road to Gbagada Expressway.
In their own remarks, the representatives of the community suggested the provision of accessible and motorable alternative routes during the rehabilitation of the two roads and the employment of youths in the area for the construction works.
They also called on the State Government to provide more standard roads for the community.
