Sanwo-Olu Restates Commitment to Fix Gridlock in Lagos
Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has reassured Lagosians of his administration's commitment to rid the state of traffic gridlock.
Sanwo-Olu gave the assurance over the weekend while inspecting the removal of 2nd Lekki Roundabout as part of Junction improvements for the free flow of vehicular movements along the Lekki corridors.
The State government has embarked on the removal of some roundabouts identified as the major causes of traffic gridlock being experienced by motorists.
Four roundabouts including Ikotun, 2nd roundabout on the Lekki-Epe Expressway, Allen Avenue roundabout and Maryland will be removed to pave the way for road expansion and free flow of traffic.
The government, through the Ministry of Transportation, says the removal of some roundabouts and street furniture such as giant billboards will give room for road expansion and strategically ease off traffic congestion in some parts of the metropolis.
