Amid perennial traffic congestion rocking the state, Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Monday, commissioned 31 network of roads totalling 20.216 km in Ojokoro Local Council Development Area, (LCDA) in Ifako-Ijaiye local government area to facilitate effective traffic management in the state.

Speaking at the commissioning which took place at four different locations in the LCDA, Sanwo-Olu said, “good road network facilitates effective management of traffic and transport thereby boosting the socio-economic activities of the State; it reduces traffic induced health challenges and travel time to access health facilities and educational institutions.

The governor said the drainages that came with the roads will help to de-flood the environment while the streetlights complement the security architecture of the state.

According to him, the provision of road infrastructure is central to the delivery of the THEMES Agenda of his administration, adding that, “it is common knowledge that tourism and entertainment are better appreciated and attract more people when access to the venue is relatively stress-free.

“To this extent the prioritisation of infrastructure especially, road, rail, and water transportation facilities is predicated on its multiplier effect and direct relationship to other pillars of the THEMES agenda.”

The governor said, Ojokoro LCDA is a strategic settlement with a fast growing population and huge need for infrastructural renewal adding that the 31 network of roads commissioned was specifically executed to offer traffic relief to the rapidly developing area, improve the socio-economic activities and connectivity within the axis and its neighbouring Ogun state through Segun Adetiba Road and the bridge across Ilo River. The completion of the network of roads will also complement other completed roads within Ojokoro LCDA. (Leadership)
