The Lagos state Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, has revealed that his government will build a 10-lane highway that will link Ikorodu, Itoikin, Epe and Ijebu Ode, in Ogun state, to ease transportation of people and goods along the corridor.
The governor made the statement during an interactive parley with journalists last Friday, June 19, 2015 at the Lagos Governor House, his official residence. Ambode said the thinking in the government is that road will further open these communities to the potentials of the Fee Trade Zone (FTZ) in Lekki and the new Airport in Epe.
“We must start thinking of the future concerning that road. We said we will have an International Airport in Epe and an Export Processing Zone in Lekki and a Deep Seaport also in Lekki”, he said.
“We missed something between Oshodi and Murtala Mohammed International Airport, there is no fast track rail that can take goods straight to the Airport. Should we also miss that here? Those are the issues that we are lookingat,” the governor added.
