Lagos State Governor, @, begins Road and Drainage reconstruction. It be can recalled that Governor Ambode paid an unscheduled visit to the area recently, describing the state of the road as ‘unacceptable’ and assuring residents that the road and drainage would get a face lift soon.
In line with his assurance, the governor in the past few weeks had mobilised the Lagos State Works and Infrastructure Department to commence work on the network of roads.
But after what appeared to be years of neglect and near abandonment, there seems to be a ray of hope for the Bariga residents after construction exercise began February 4th 2016 on the order of Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode. Since over 30years, Another State Record breaking shall open a new chapter by Governor Ambode as the story of heavy traffic logjams along the road due to poor drainage will be a thing of past.
Men of Works and Infrastructure Department are at work on Bariga Roads, reconstructed by the Lagos State Government on Thursday, February 4th 2016. Duration of this project will last within 6months
When ADELOVE newsTeam visited the community yesterday and earlier today, heaps of granite and Sands were seen littering sections of the road at Oloruntoyin, Jebina, where visible signs of construction work were seen (See photos detailed below). Various road construction machines, including the ones used in compressing the soil were also seen at different locations.
Some residents and motorists who spoke with the ADELOVE Team admitted that though the heaps of granite, sand and the construction works as a whole had seemingly worsened traffic on the road for the meantime, they were hopeful and optimistic that at least within a short time, things will change.
