Lagosians receive early Yuletide Gift from FG | Read More

The Federal Controller of Works in Lagos State, Mr Olukayode Popoola has said that massive rehabilitation of roads had begun in the state, ahead of the festive season.

He said the move is in the directive of the Federal Government. Popoola told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the ongoing rehabilitation would involve all major roads to ensure a smooth commute during the yuletide.

“We know there is going to be a lot of movement, especially for the Christmas and New Year, so the honourable minister has directed that palliative work be carried out on all the major roads where you have potholes and failed sections. Palliative work has started and is ongoing, especially where we have contractors on ground. “Lagos-Ota-Abeokuta is part of it, palliative work is being carried out by Messrs Julius Berger Nigeria Ltd, Ikorodu-Sagamu, Arab Contractors are working there even Lagos-Badagry Expressway where CGC is doing palliative work. So we are working on almost all the roads. All the critical sections on all the roads in Lagos State will be attended to,’’ he said.

He explained further that several expansion joints had been changed and the ones around Apongbon Bridge were the next about to be changed.
