According to the State Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Mr. Adebowale Akinsanya, it was in line with the vision to protect lives and improve the aesthetics of the environment.

However, part of the achievement of Lagos state government for 2017 include the Ajah fly over bridge which was commissioned on the 19th of May 2017. Also Abule-Egba fly over bridge.
The Ajah Bridge is a particularly significant project because of its strategic importance to the economic growth of the Lekki Free Trade Zone and the rapidly developing Ibeju-Lekki-Epe axis. This axis will play a key role in the future prosperity of Lagos State as the home to many multi-billion naira private investments in the Lekki Free Trade Zone as well as the upcoming seaport and airport. The State Government is irreversibly committed to making Lagos State an investment haven. This explains why it is putting in place top class infrastructure that will facilitate rapid socio-economic growth.
While the Ajah project is aimed at easing movement of residents and commuters on the Lagos Island- Ibeju-Lekki areas with a view to boosting the ease of doing business, the Abule-Egba Bridge is intended to bring relief to millions of commuters plying Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway in Alimosho, Agege and Ifako-Ijaiye Local Government Areas of the State.
