Lagos re-opens Dopemu Link

-

- Advertisment -

In fulfillment of the electioneering campaign promise of the Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, the State Government has reopened the Alimosho road, which is also called Go Ye Road, in the Alimosho Local Government Area of the State.

Briefing Newsmen recently during an inspection tour of ongoing projects in the State, the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Works and Infrastructure, Engr. Ajibade Bade-Adebowale, said the reopened access point is expected to greatly improve commuter experience and dislodge traffic gridlock which often times characterized the Lagos Abeokuta Expressway between Cement Bus Stop and Dopemu/Iyana Ipaja.

He said the Ministry, in conjunction with the Ministry of Transportation, had been directed by the Governor, who had twice visited the area, to reopen the access and provide adequate traffic infrastructure to ensure smooth flow of traffic.

It will be recalled that the access had been opened in 2014 to facilitate the rehabilitation of the link bridges at Dopemu and Iyana Impala and later closed at the completion of the exercise.

While speaking further on plans by the State Government to improve the quality of the State’s road stock, Engr. Bade-Adebowale said “there is an irrevocable commitment on the part of the Government under the leadership of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to quickly deal with the various road challenges across the State regardless of the location of the road, whether rural or urban”.

He says government is currently working on what the Governor has called ‘Operation 20 road per LG in a partnership that will see LG/LCDAs compliment the State Government efforts in delivering same quality roads across the State.

The Permanent Secretary explained that his visit to various projects site is to ascertain the pace of work and ensure adherence to the quality and dictates of the contracts, exemplifying that his inspection of Igi-Olugbin road in Bariga, which the Governor had visited and directed the contractor to ensure speedy completion of the project, is to ascertain the level of compliance.
