Governor Akinwun­mi Ambode of La­gos State yesterday assured residents that the ongoing Lagos-Badagry Expressway Expansion project would be complet­ed before the end of 2019.
The governor, who spoke shortly after embarking on extensive inspection of on­going projects across the state, said the project was a major economic catalyst for Lagos, therefore his administration was totally committed to seeing it through.
Recalling that his recent visit to Denmark was to finalise plans with APM Terminals to fast-track the commencement of work on the $2.6billion Badagry Deep Sea Port. Gov Am­bode said it was important for the road network to be completed within schedule to accommodate the antic­ipated increase in econom­ic activities within the axis.
“On the part of govern­ment, it is imperative that the project is accelerated and completed on sched­ule. It is a 10-lane expan­sion project with a provi­sion for rail”, he said.
The governor said that though the project was awarded up to Okokomai­ko, his administration was almost at a point of giving it to a concessionaire who is expected to extend the project from Okokomaiko to Seme Border.
“We believe strongly that the contractor has done a good job here. We have given him the right of way and it is our belief that the one that has been awarded should be com­pleted on schedule. I am committed to this project; I am committed to the ex­pansion of the economy of the East axis of Lagos. That is the surest way to go.
“By doing this project, we would also expand the real estate value of this axis and the tourism potentials of the Badagry axis. I am confident that in no time, we should have a complete project before the end of 2019.”
