The Lagos State Government says it has approved the construction of flyover bridges for two of the state’s high-density traffic zones, Ajah round about and Abule Egba junction.

This is contained in a statement issued on Sunday by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr Steve Ayorinde.

Ayorinde said that the two major projects were approved by the State Executive Council and had been duly awarded to contractors for a speedy commencement of work.


He said that the projects would be completed within 16 months as part of Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode’s ongoing road infrastructure projects across the state.

He said that the construction of the reinforced concrete flyover and signalised intersection at Ajah round about would be undertaken simultaneously with the rehabilitation of Freedom Road in Lekki area of the state.

The commissioner said that this was to reduce the heavy traffic being recorded at the Ajah round about and the Lekki-Ikoyi axis.

Ayorinde said the Ajah flyover would have a solar-powered signalised intersection in order to greatly improve traffic.

He said that the upgrade of Freedom Road was expected to ease traffic considerably for vehicles using the Third Roundabout to connect Lekki through Admiralty Way.

He said that the Ajah project would ease movement of residents and commuters on the Lagos Island and Ibeju Lekki areas.

“The construction of the reinforced concrete dual-carriage flyover bridge at Abule Egba junction will equally bring joy and relief to millions of commuters that use the Lagos -Abeokuta Expressway on a daily basis when completed,” he said.

Ayorinde said the Abule -Egba flyover would also have signalised intersection under it to service Oko-Oba and other link roads within the axis.

He said that the state government had also awarded contracts for the rehabilitation and upgrade of strategic arterial/inner roads in Epe Local Government Area of the state.
