Lagos removes four roundabouts for road expansion

The Lagos State government has started removing four roundabouts in Ikotun, Lekki-Epe Expressway, Allen Avenue and Maryland to pave way for road expansion and free flow of traffic.

Commissioner for Transportation Dr. Frederick Oladeinde said projects will be completed between March and April.

This, he said, would ease traffic on the routes.

“We have contacted physical planning who have marked some buildings; everything that needs to be done in terms of planning has been done, what we are waiting for is execution.

“The planning is what takes time but the execution is very fast so once we work 24 hours, we would soon complete it. I’m confident that the roads will be opened in April,” he said.

Oladeinde said that the essence of removing the roundabouts was to increase the capacity of the junctions
