Infrastructure Watch: Lagos Approves Flyover for Ajah and Abule Egba

Dolapo Omidire

Late last year, the Lagos State Government approved the construction of flyover bridges for two of the State’s high-density traffic zones – Ajah roundabout and Abule Egba junction.

In a press release issued by the State’s Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Steve Ayorinde on the 13th of December, it was stated that the projects will be completed within 16 months as part of Governor Ambode’s ongoing road infrastructure projects across the state.

The statement said the construction of the reinforced concrete flyover and signalised intersection at Ajah roundabout would be undertaken simultaneously with the rehabilitation of Freedom Road in Lekki. These projects aim to reduce the heavy traffic currently recorded at the Ajah roundabout and the Lekki-Ikoyi axis. The roundabout where the flyover will be built is shown in the map below.

Ayorinde said the Ajah flyover bridge will have a solar-powered signalized intersection in order to greatly improve traffic, while the upgrade of Freedom Road is expected to ease traffic considerably for vehicles using the Third Roundabout to connect Lekki through Admiralty way.

Similarly, the construction of the reinforced concrete dual-carriage flyover bridge at Abule Egba junction, the government expressed optimism that it would equally bring joy and relief to the commuters that use the Lagos -Abeokuta Expressway in Ifako-Ijaye Local Government Area of the State. The Abule Egba flyover bridge will also have signalised intersection under it to service Oko-Oba and other link roads within the axis. The intersection where the flyover will be built is shown in the map below.
