Motorists and residents along the Seme-Badagry expressway have found succor as Lagos State government has commenced work on the dilapidated road.

Residents in some parts of Lagos including Iyana-Iba, Okokomaiko, Badagry, and Ijanikin, all along the popular Lagos-Badagry expressway are on the verge of breathing a sigh of relief as the Lagos State Ministry of Works has called for a heightened pace on the construction work being done on the road.


The road is filled with several potholes obstructing free car flow

Before now, the road was described by many as a death trap due to its terrible condition. There were huge potholes along sections such as Igbo-Elerin bus stop, Okokomaiko u-turn, Ijanikin, Okoko bus stop, Volks, Abule-Osun, Iyana-Isahi bus stop, Trade Fair and Iyana Iba, etc. Moving from one area to another was a tedious experience due to the traffic gridlock often created on the road. For many years, motorists plying the road cried out for help. The light at the end of the tunnel they sought for has finally arrived as the Lagos State government is committed to fixing the road.

Senator Adamu Aliero led the Senate Committee on Works to clamor for fast completion of the ongoing construction on the site. This was to ensure that the masses are relieved of the trouble experienced while plying the road and to facilitate international trade between other countries.

The senator and his team members visited the construction company executing the project. After meeting with the contractors, they embarked on an inspection of the project – looking at areas such as Ijanikin, Okokomaiko, Topo Badagry, and Seme border.

Addressing the press, Aliero acknowledged the importance of the road in the West African sub-region as it connects Nigeria to other countries in the region. He also explained that the project has created employment opportunities, providing jobs to no fewer than 2,000 people.
