Lagos State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode on Wednesday commissioned the Ijegun-Isheri, Osun-Isolo (Jakande Estate) road project as part of activities marking the Lagos@50 celebrations.
According to a statement signed by Chief Public Affairs Officer, Lagos State Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development, Mrs Olubukonla Nwonah, Ambode pledged to continue work on projects that would make life comfortable for residents irrespective of location within the State.
The dual carriage way road project, which included two bridges at Isheri Oshun and Ailegun junction, drains on both sides, service ducts and street lighting, among others, is a viable alternative route for people of Ijegun, Ijeododo and Isheri Oshun to link Apapa-Oworonshoki Expressway through Jakande Estate.
The road, which is with a total length of 6,500m long and average width of 20.350m, was also designed to significantly decongest traffic at the ever busy Ikotun junction.
Speaking at the commissioning ceremony attended by traditional rulers, community leaders, members of the business community, among others, Ambode said the delivery of the road project was part of the efforts of his administration to ease movement of people from one point to the other.
The governor who was represented by the Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Tpl. Wasiu Anifowose said the project would greatly improve connectivity and significantly reduce travel time as well as man hour loss due to traffic congestion in the area.
According to him, in the last two years, his administration had remained focused on the promise to provide good governance and make life more comfortable for the people.
Onisheri of Isheri-Olofin, Oba Abdulwahab Balogun commended Governor Ambode and his team for purposeful and visionary leadership they have been offering the people.
The Monarch said the road would greatly relieve Ejigbo, Ikotun and Ijegun of the perennial traffic congestion in the areas.
Also, the Iyaloja of Jakande, Chief Mrs Stella Adebiyi and Igando-Ikotun Community Development Committee (CDC) Chairman, Elder Oshibeluwo Ademola said the delivery of the project had brought great succor to residents of the area.
