The governor of Lagos state has reportedly begun a major infrastructural overhaul of the Epe in the state by flagging off Osa-Lekki-Epe expressway reconstruction project. Media reports and photos show that Governor Sanwo-Olu inaugurated the first phase of this road reconstruction project on November 1 during a ceremony in Ibeju Lekki. This first phase of the road project is expected to be completed within 20 months and should cover 18.75km from Eleko Junction to Epe T-Junction.

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos state has flagged off the immediate reconstruction of Ibeju Lekki-Epe expressway

Going by history records, this particular road had been constructed since 1981 but was later upgraded in 2006 and has never gotten any further attention since that time. As of today, the condition of the road has deteriorated drastically due to increased vehicular activities on the road and growing population of residents in the area. With this new intervention of Governor Sanwo-Olu, the entire road stretching from Eleko to Epe will be dualized and properly rehabilitated.

According to press reports, the reconstructed Lekki-Epe expressway will be dualized on a stronger pavement with each side having 3 lanes. It is also stated in the reports that one of these lanes will be dedicated to only heavy-duty vehicles and large trucks. When inaugurating this road project, Governor Sanwo-Olu said the Lekki-Epe expressway is very important for the economic prosperity of Lagos state which is why he will be committed to its development.

Below is a press video that covered the flag-off ceremony of the Lekki-Epe expressway reconstruction project.
