The Lagos State Government has shown profound gratitude to residents and motorists for their support and perseverance on the road rehabilitation and construction projects that have been going on lately, and have resulted in traffic logjams in some streets of Lagos.
Engineer Aramide Adeyoye, Governor Sanwo-Olu's special advisers on Works and Infrastructure, who inspected some of the road projects over the weekend made an appeal to commuters, asking them to exercise more patience as they're already doing. She said the state government decided to execute multiple projects at the same time, so there would be no delay when the rainy season comes in April.

Engr. Adeyoye professed the condition of roads during the beginning of Sanwo-Olu's administration gave them no option than to apply the multiple project approach to rehabilitate the crucial roads. This, according to her, will ease the discomfort on road users and also reduce the damage to vehicles.
The roads where the government has intervened include Lekki-Epe Expressway; Allen Avenue Roundabout; Ojota along Ikorodu Road; Agege Pen Cinema Flyover; Ijegun-Ijagemo Road and Lagos-Badagry Expressway among others

The state government executed multiple road projects at the same time to avoid delay during the rainy season
While admitting the poor state of roads in Obafemi Awolowo Way and Ikorodu, the special adviser pointed out any delay in the completion of the bad roads would, in turn, extend the time it will take to fix the roads because of the rainy season that's fast approaching.
Through her statement, Naijauto learned the Public Works Corporation was given the directive to restrict fixing of roads to 10 pm and 5 am off-peak hours.
Engr. Adeyoye urged road users to cooperate and apply caution while assuring them of the immediate completion of the roads. She told motorists to obey traffic rules while playing the road rehabilitation corridors.
