Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has revealed that the reconstruction of the Apapa-Oshodi Expressway would start within the next two weeks.
Osinbajo spoke at a dialogue with stakeholders on the Apapa traffic congestion in Lagos on Thursday.
According to him, “We have been working quite hard now to get approval for road construction.
Among the roads are the Apapa-Oshodi Expressway and Mile 2- Liverpool roundabout are important roads but they have been delayed but I am personally working to ensure that we could get that through and we are trying to look at immediate solutions that can be done and how the process could be expedited to achieve results.
He added that “I can guarantee that we will get all the approvals done. I don’t think that it should take us more than two weeks to get the approval so that we can begin the work.
“There are so many other bad areas, especially the coconut area in front of Tincan Port, the Leventis to Wharf Road is also another area we are looking at, the rehabilitation of the Creek Road so that we can have a two-lane access into the ports and all of those are important roads and all of them are Federal roads, so we have a responsibility to ensure that these things are done.”
