Flyover bridge

Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has revealed the completion date for the ongoing construction of Ajah flyover.

According to his website, the Lagos State governor stated that his  administration will ensure that the flyover is completed by the end of May 2017.

Speaking at the Lagos House in Ikeja, he also revealed more strategies to effectively manage traffic in the state.

Ambode announced that the government intends to remove the three roundabout in Lekki-Ajah corridor.

He said this would reduce traffic and ease vehicular movement.

The affected areas are Igbo Efon, Chevron and Third Roundabouts, will be removed from next week.

We have tried to improve services within the State and the area of operation of Chevron which is the Lekki axis is not left out. Few weeks back, we improved on the traffic management towards that axis and we believe that the move would also enhance productivity of the people.

“I also like to use this opportunity to say that because of the impact that we have seen in the elimination of roundabouts in the Lekki axis, we have actually approved another exercise and starting from next week, we will commence the elimination of additional three roundabouts in the axis most especially Chevron, Igbo Efon and Third Roundabout. We believe doing that will totally eliminate traffic in that axis and we hope to also open the Ajah Flyover before the end of May,” the governor said.
