The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, said on Sunday all roads and bridges under construction in the Apapa area of the state would be completed by October.
He gave the assurance during an inspection tour of roads and bridges under construction in the area.
The governor said the traffic gridlocks experienced in the axis would be cleared once the projects are completed.
Sanwo-Olu visited the Costain Bridge, Alaka Bridge, Ijora Bridge, Marine Bridge, Liverpool, Lilypond, and Mile 2, among others.
He said there was a need to overhaul the entire Apapa road network to reduce the spend on the road.
He said: “We need to work in a methodological order and see how we redevelop the whole of Apapa.
”The construction going on is expensive because they are all concrete roads. We have Liverpool and Creek roads all completed.
“I understand that by October, all this network of roads will be opened up to traffic.”
The governor said the state government, in collaboration with the Nigerian Ports Authority, was building another port in Lekki, adding that the project would be ready in two years’ time to ease the pressure on the Apapa Port.
