During the last weekend, we got reports that Lagos Governor; Sanwo-Olu approved the commencement of constructions work on the long-awaited 8.75km regional Lekki road in a flag-off ceremony. Reports from this flag-off ceremony highlight that the governor notably said that the road project is a critical part of his government’s masterplan which is focused on decongesting traffic gridlocks in Eti-Osa LGA of Lagos state.
Lagos Governor, Sanwo-Olu flags off the construction of an 8.75km road in the Lekki region of the state
The success of this project would really benefit a lot of Lagos residents because the state has always been one of the top 5 cities with the worst traffic in Nigeria. It was further stated in the reports from the Lekki road’s flag-off ceremony that governor Sanwo-Olu describes the road project as proof to show just how committed his administration has been towards enhancing socio-economic activities, particularly in Lekki-Epe axis.
According to reports, this road project is being handled by MS Hi-Tech construction company Ltd. The road is expected to link Freedom Way in the Eti-Osa part of Lagos to the Lekki-Epe expressway side of Victoria Garden City. This road is also reportedly going to be the antecedent to the proposed 4th Mainland Bridge which is expected to start from that axis.

Governor Sanwo-Olu reportedly mentioned that this road should be completed in 24 months from now and it would not just change the Eti-Osa area’s landscape alone but also greatly improve overall journey time for many commuters. The reports also claim that the governor said the new road will help improve the efficiency of all traffic management systems that the government is currently adopting in Lagos state.
