Lagos Announces Opening Of Badagry Expressway To Traffic
The Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, on Tuesday directed that the completed portions of the Lagos-Badagry Expressway from Eric Moore to Okokomaiko be opened up to traffic as soon as possible following the completion of works by the contractor.
The governor also directed the Public Works Corporation to intensify palliative works on the road from Okokomaiko to Badagry.
The state’s Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Ade Akinsanya, in a statement, said the governor was touched by the discomfort being experienced by the motoring public plying that axis and has vowed to continue to intensify all necessary steps to ameliorate their sufferings.
Addressing the issue of harassment raised by the residents, Mr Akinsanya said that security and traffic agencies have been directed to enforce the provisions of the state traffic law by dislodging road side traders and hawkers from the road.
