As a direct response to the cries of Abule – Egba, Lagos Mainland residents whose roads were affected during the construction of the Abule – Egba Flyover Bridge, the state government has rehabilitated the affected roads in the community and other neighbouring areas.
The development was in fulfillment of the pledge by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to repair and upgrade all the damaged roads.
As a result, the rehabilitated roads include Charity Road, like Jibowu Road, Ahmadiyya Road, and Sanni Balogun Road in the community. Others are Agbe Road, Awori Road and Adewunmi Adu Road.
The rehabilitation work done on the dual carriage Charity Road has since been completed with the removal and relaying of asphalt on both sides.
Recall that Ambode had, during the inauguration of the bridge in May 2017, assured that all the adjoining roads in the corridor disrupted through traffic diversion while the construction of the bridge lasted, would not only be rehabilitated but also upgraded.
Meanwhile, aside the construction of Jubilee Bridge, the State Government is also constructing Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) lane from Abule Egba to Oshodi, Lagos Mainland, while the second phase connecting Abule Egba to Sango Ota Toll Gate is planned for the future, InsideMainland gathered.
