The two major projects were approved by the State’s Executive Council and have been duly awarded to contractors.
In statement on Sunday, December 13, state commissioner for information and strategy, Steve Ayorinde said the projects would be completed within 16 months as part of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s ongoing road infrastructure projects across the state.
The statement said the construction of the reinforced concrete flyover and signalised intersection at Ajah roundabout will be undertaken simultaneously with the rehabilitation of Freedom Road in Lekki, with a view to reducing the heavy traffic congestion.
To underscore its commitment to road infrastructure development that seeks to touch every area of the state that may have been inadvertently left behind, Ayorinde said that the state government has also awarded contracts for the rehabilitation and upgrade of strategic arterial/inner roads in Epe local government area of the State.
