Three more roundabouts in Lekki-Ajah to go, Flyover ready by May - Ambode

Lagos State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode on Wednesday assured that his administration will complete the ongoing con­struction of Ajah Flyover by the end of May 2017, just as he revealed the plans of gov­ernment to remove three more roundabouts in Lekki-Ajah corridor to ease vehicu­lar movement.
Governor Ambode, who spoke at Lagos House in Ikeja when he received the man­agement of Chevron Nigeria Limited led by its Chairman and Managing Director, Mr. Jeffrey Ewing, said the round­abouts would be removed starting from next week, add­ing that the action was in line with the resolve of govern­ment to totally eliminate traf­fic in the axis.
The affected roundabouts, according to Governor Am­bode, are Igbo Efon, Chevron and Third Roundabout.
He said since assumption of office, his administration had tried as much as possible to improve on the business environment, and assured that government would con­tinue to invest in security and infrastructure to make life comfortable for residents and investors.
“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,” Governor Ambode said.
He noted that the essence of government is to create the enabling environment for businesses to thrive, assuring that he would continue to do his best to provide safe and sound environment.
“Security will be improved upon; we don’t think we have gotten to the ideal state but we will continue to expend re­sources efficiently on security to ensure that the businesses that come to Lagos and the ones existing in Lagos will continue to thrive,” he said. - THE AUTHORITY
