Lagos—Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State yesterday said that the state had concluded plans to eliminate three more roundabouts from the Lekki axis to further improve traffic management there.
Ambode also said that the Ajah flyover bridge currently under construction would be completed and accessible to the public by the end of May.
Ambode said this when a delegation from Chevron Nigeria Limited led by its Chairman and Managing Director, Mr Jeffrey Ewing, paid him a courtesy visit at the Lagos House in Ikeja.
The roundabouts to be eliminated include Chevron, Igbo-Efon and the Third roundabout.
The state government had demolished two roundabouts last December to ease traffic congestion in the axis.
The governor said that so much positive impact had been felt with the elimination of the roundabouts last year.
Ambode also commended the company for its contribution toward the development of the state in the last five decades.
He said that he was looking forward to more partnership between the state and Chevron in the areas of education, health, infrastructure development and capacity building.
Earlier, Mr Ewing had commended Ambode for the significant improvements the state had witnessed in the areas of road and infrastructure development as well as in security.
He pledged that the company would partner more with the state.
