People of Abule Egba and its environs have appealed to Lagos governor, Akinwunmi Ambode on the damaged feeder roads in the area which have now become a sort of an abandoned project after the opening of the newly constructed fly overs and the express roads in the vicinity.
Some of the roads, according to one of the residents and member, Community Development Association (CDA), Mr. Kolawole Saliu, are now death traps for the users and residents in the area.
While speaking further with encomium.ng on Friday, June 23, 2017, Saliu said, “We’re very happy now that Abule Egba road construction project has been completed and opened. But the problem now is that all the roads and adjourning streets to the express road have been damaged by heavy trucks plying all these roads as alternatives to the main road when the construction was ongoing. And this is rainy season when ordinarily all the places are usually flooded, even when the roads were motorable let alone now that they are dilapidated.
“So, we’re calling on Governor Akinwummi Ambode to help repair the roads to ensure free flow of traffic building up every night on some of the roads due to the poor state. Not just repairing the roads, the government also needs to construct drainage system for free flow of water during the rainy season. If these two things are done, life will be better in the area.”
