The Lagos State Government has said the ground breaking ceremony of the Fourth Mainland Bridge will hold days after the inauguration of Governor, Babajide SanwoOlu’s second term.
Governor SanwoOlu announced this, on Friday, March 31, 2023, during the inauguration of the rehabilitation of the 2.5kilometres Oba Sekumade Road, Ipakodo, in Ikorodu.
The Governor also inaugurated the reconstruction of the TOS Benson Road, Ipakodo, in Ikorodu.
He however noted that his administration is not about cheap politics or publicity, as it has over the years been fulfilling the promises made to Lagosians and residents in the state.
He added that Ikorodu has always been a reference point in the state, stressing that it has over the years been peaceful and accommodating to visitors.
The governor also commended Ikorodu residents for voting for him, during the just concluded Governorship election.
He equally promised that delivery of projects during his second term would be speedy and bigger in scope.
According to him, his second term will make records of iconic projects far better than his first term in office.
He assured that his administration, in the next four years, will be committed to ensuring accelerated development across the nooks and crannies of the state.
He announced that in a few weeks time his administration will be rounding off ongoing projects, and will be performing the ground breaking ceremony of the Fourth Mainland Bridge.
On her part, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Works and Infrastructure, Mrs. Aramide Adeyoye, said the public outcry and the perennial flooding in the area moved the present administration, in awarding the project.
Her words; ”This was after extensive engineering investigations and tests of the underlying soil by adopting a more expensive but more enduring option of a Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement, CRCP, for the reconstruction and upgrade of the road as against the option of an asphaltic flexible pavement that was not sustainable.
”It is worthwhile to mention that the goal of the project was also to resolve the perennial flooding issues around Ogolonto, Omologede, Ipakodo and environs.”
