INSIDEMAINLAND – Residents of Satellite Town in Lagos have pleaded with the state government to intervene on their behalf as the construction pace on the Buba Marwa road has slowed down.
Daniel Onalo, a resident of one of the town’s estates, stated that the building of Buba Marwa Road, which connects the expressway to Ijegun Waterside, had dragged on for a full year with no progress made.
The resident also noted that the official plan for completion of the construction was seven months.
Onalo said: “The Lagos State government awarded the contract to two companies, they are supposed to undertake the construction of the road itself and a side of the drainage from Fin-Niger to waterside while GTO was to handle the drainage from Holy Trinity Hospital to Fin-Niger Bus stop.
“Craneburg is putting in more work as it has completed one side of the road from Fin-Niger to Holy Trinity Hospital, while they have completed about 40 percent of the 80 percent portion of the drainage assigned to them.”
Onalo noted that the traffic situation between Barracks and Alakija is bad.
