Governor of Lagos, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has said his administration would not rest until they bring perpetrators of Apapa gridlock to book.

Sanwo-Olu disclosed during the inauguration of the newly reconfigured Lekki First, Second and Abraham Adesanya roundabouts in Lagos on Wednesday.

“Our promise to solve transportation and gridlock in Lagos, especially Apapa, we will do it well. We are going to stay there. We are going to put resources there and ensure we do what will make Apapa port access road free of traffic.

“We are not commissioning Lekki/Epe route. We are handing it over because it is part of our campaign promises and infrastructure that we have done. Why we are hanging over traffic improvement infrastructure is because these are campaign promises to ease transportation and traffic management in Lagos. So we are putting infrastructure in place to reduce travel time,” said the governor.

In his opening remarks, the Commissioner for Environment, Frederic Oladeinde, said, “One of the solutions recommended to Mr Governor was the reconfiguration and remodelling of some of the existing roundabouts and junctions that could no longer cope with the current volume of vehicles that ply them.”
