The Lagos State government  said despite the adjustment in the delivery time line of the Lekki Regional Road, the project will be completed before the completion of the tenure of the present administration.

This was disclosed by the Special Adviser on Works and Infrastructure, Mrs. Aramide Adeyoye who spoke after an inspection of on-going construction works on the road project which starts from Victoria Garden City to Freedom Way at Lekki Scheme 1.

Adeyoye added that the Lekki Sub-region being the new economic centre of Lagos and with huge investments like the Lekki Free Trade Zone, Lekki Ports, Dangote Petrochemical Plant, Lekki Airports, and other industrial and commercial developments, coupled with the numerous housing developments, both public and private springing up in the corridor needs an alternative road.

According to her, Lekki Regional Road would be connecting VGC, Ikate Elegushi, Ikota, Chevron Drive, Ajiran, Pinnock Beach Estate, Gracefield Island and Orange Island, up to Freedom Road.

The road would serve as an alternative to the Lekki-Epe Expressway, which is already congested and is at present the only road serving the Lekki Sub-region.

The Special Adviser said that the 8.75 kilometre road, comprise a 500 meters bridge, 251 metres interchange, 50 metres bicycle lane and an adjoining 500 metres road being handled by Messrs Hi-Tech Construction Company Ltd was at 25 per cent completion stage.

She explained that the initial time line for the project which commenced about a year ago had to be adjusted because of right of way issues, adding that but given the pace of work, the project is still much on course.

“The contractor is on site and they have done a lot of work behind the scene. Pilling works for the pedestrian bridges are completed and the bridges are already in place while a lot of sand filling dredging on the road alignment has been achieved,” she said.

Adeyoye said pile foundation works for the bridge had already been completed and the contractors are working on other segments of the bridge components like the caps and abutments of the bridge, adding that the project is a precursor to the proposed Fourth Mainland Bridge.
