‘The Lagos State Government has restated its commitment towards improving the standards of living and well-being of the entire residents of the state, just as it commenced immediate rehabilitation and upgrade of the second segment of the arterial/inner roads in Epe Local Government Area.”-The Nation
Speaking at a stakeholders’ meeting, yesterday, at Michael Otedola College of Primary Education, Naforija, Epe, the state’s Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Abiola Anifowoshe, said the road construction was part of the infrastructure development vision of the state government.
He said Epe town and environs was currently witnessing an influx of people and increased traffic volume as a result of industrial and commercial growth arising from various developments like Dangote Oil Refinery, air and sea ports, as well as industries within the Lekki Free Trade Zone.
The commissioner added that the road when completed will improve road connectivity and accommodate the expected increased traffic volume arising from industrial and commercial growth, while adding that it will also eliminate potential traffic gridlock as well as enhancing property value.
According to him, “The project is in fulfillment of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s promise of rehabilitating all road networks in the state and ensuring even development across the state. I just want to implore our people to cooperate with the contractors and, at the end, we all come to enjoy the dividends of democracy.”
