LASG to upgrade Iru, Victoria Island-Lekki roads

The Lagos State Government says it plans to upgrade Oniru network of roads, covering Muri Okunola extention, Ligali Ayorinde, Akinbolagbe and seven major junctions in the area.

The Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Dr Idris Salako, said this would ease the gridlock experienced by road users in the area.

Salako stated that it was imperative as the axis was the hub of investment activities in the state.

Speaking during an engagement with stakeholders where he was represented by the Director of Development Matters, Mr Oladimeji Animashaun, the commissioner said in view of the importance of the area, it should experience continuous infrastructural renewal.

He said, “It is our fervent belief that by taking development to every nook and cranny of the state, we will improve our rating on the ease of doing business in Lagos State in particular and Nigeria as a whole.

“We would have also  gone a long way in making life easier and more meaningful to the teeming population of Lagosians through effective inter-connectivity within our state while also helping investment to thrive for our people to reap the attendant benefits such as employment and improvement in health.”

The commissioner said the collaboration of Access Bank Plc with the Lagos State Government on road upgrade project in the area underscored the importance of the Public-Private Partnership model in delivering public infrastructure for socio-economic development.

According to him, the major import of the stakeholders’ interactive forum was to secure mutual understanding of stakeholders for the smooth and successful execution of the project.
