“The repair of this bridge is long overdue and I encourage motorists to cooperate with traffic officers.”
He also said he inspected Allen Junction and Lekki roundabouts, saying: “I am impressed with the quality of work which will remove the usual gridlock around these areas.”
Reacting to the ongoing work at the Pen Cinema Agege Bridge, Sanwo-Olu said “despite the decrease in the pace of work caused by” the coronavirus pandemic, “I want to assure Lagosians that it will be completed by October. We remain undaunted in our commitment to improve the quality of lives of Lagosians.”
