LSPWC repairs potholes on Lagos roads

The Lagos State Public Works Corporation has begun maintenance work on sections of the third mainland bridge as part of its ongoing state-wide road maintenance and rehabilitation operations.

The Head of Public Affairs at LSPWC, Samuel Ayetutu, the Corporation’s General Manager, Engr. Lateef Somide made a statement during an inspection of the work.

He said that even though maintenance of the bridge is under the purview of the Federal Road Maintenance Agency (FERMA), the Lagos State Government decided to provide the one-off intervention on critical sections which are not only slowing down traffic but also leading to accidents in some cases.

He said further that “this effort is in furtherance of Mr. Governor’s commitment to the unhindered movement of persons and goods in Lagos to promote its status as the commercial nerve center of the country’’

Somide said that his agency chose to fix the third mainland bridge between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm on Sunday when traffic is usually lighter on the corridor. This, he said, is in line with the Corporation’s sensitivity to minimizing inconvenience to road users whenever its men are on the road.

Speaking on maintenance work recently carried out across the state, Engr. Somide said that since the break of heavy downpour witnessed in the past weeks, the Corporation has continued to extend its operations to many parts of Lagos.

Some said: “Within the last two weeks, LSPWC’s presence has been felt in many parts of Lagos which include Emmanuel Keshi Street, Kosofe; Abdul Quadri Street, Kosofe; Sabo Roundabout, Ikorodu; Haruna Akintola Street, Ikorodu; Herbert Macaulay Street, Lagos Mainland; Barikisu Iyede Street, Lagos Mainland; Abiodun Sobajo Street, Lagos Mainland; First Foundation Street, Opebi, Ikeja.”
