Ambode Warns Against Converting Newly Constructed Roads To Trading Points & Parking Lots

Following the ongoing official commissioning of the 114 Road Project across the 20 Local Government Areas (LGs) and 37 Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs) in the State, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has warned residents to resist the temptation of converting the roads to trading points and parking lots.

Ambode made the appeal at the continuation of the commissioning of the 114 roads built by his administration across the 20 Local Governments and 37 Local council Development Areas. Earlier today, the LASG commissioning team continued the process across Lagos. The team commissioned the Ojediran Shopitan and Taiwo Molajo streets both in Ikorodu West LCDA.

While addressing attendees at the event, the Governor who was represented by Asiwaju Olorunfunmi Bashorun noted that his government would not relent on its promise of an all-inclusive government, boosting economic activities in the state, as well as guaranteeing safety of lives and properties of residents.

However, the representative lamented that some landlords in the state do not set aside space within their structures for parking, saying “rather, they ask their tenants to park on the road.

“Allowing heavy static load on the road will reduce the life span of the road. Good roads embellish the community. It would reduce flooding and residents would be able to live comfortably.”

He added that illegal breaking of roads, usage as automobile workshop, as well as refuse dump, must stop henceforth on the new roads.
