Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu yesterday urged residents to refrain from acts that undermine the durability of critical infrastructure in the state.

Speaking at the commissioning of the Lagos-Ogun State boundary roads Phase II in Agbado Oke-Odo Local Council Development Area, he asked them to remain steadfast and take ownership of the delivered road project and join him in the journey towards a greater Lagos.

The new roads, parallel to the Lagos Abeokuta Expressway, is a functional alternative as motorists can now connect Ota from Abule Egba-Ekoro through this network of roads. The residents as beneficiaries, he said, must note that functional maintenance of the road is the responsibility of not only the Government but also theirs.

Earlier, a special adviser on Works and Infrastructure, Aramide Adeyoye, noted that Agbado Oke Odo Local Council Development Area is a strategic settlement with a fast-growing population thus requiring infrastructural upgrade and renewal.

She said the scope of the project, includes a dual-carriageway road with reinforced concrete drains, cover slab and walkways, on both sides of the Old Otta Road, which also has a reinforced concrete bridge component, as well as the construction of single carriageway inner roads with reinforced concrete drains, cover slabs and walkway on both sides of Adekoya, Makinde and Suberu Oje streets, provision of cross culverts and outfall drains at specific locations and laybys along Old Otta road.
