10-lane Badagry expressway will be completed soon – Ambode

 
Lagos Governor State, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, has assured Lagosians of his administration’s determination to complete the Mile 2-Badagry Road Expansion as soon as possible.
Ambode, who gave the assurance when he inspected the progress of work on the Mile 2-Badagry road expansion, which is being expanded to a 10-lane highway, ‎said the contractor working on the project would be mobilised to ensure its completion.

“What we have come here to do is to specifically ensure that the contractor here is mobilised. It’s also important for us that the contractor takes it as a major priority.
“The Mile 2 Badagry Expressway is very important to all of us and like we said, it’s a project that we must finish. It’s a project that I would like to be completed within the shortest possible time. So, I’ll like to see greater work done on the road project itself,” he stated.
On the Blue Line Light Rail project, the governor said efforts would be made to ensure that the Mile 2-National Theatre Corridor was completed soon.
“We should be able to put to use whatever has been done from Mile 2 to Marina. Immediately they commence work on the road project from Mile 2 towards Badagry, once we pass the part of Okokomaiko, we should be able to do the Blue Rail from Mile 2 to Okokomaiko,” Ambode added.
He urged the contractors to increase the pace of work on the project, pledging that the government would address the challenges they might be encountering towards finishing the project.
The governor said, “What we expect is that notwithstanding the rain or whatever, the immediate mobilisation should be done and then the contractor should also increase the pace of work and that’s what we will like to see. I want to let you know that whatever it is that are encumbrances to completing this project, we are all going to sit down to make sure that we alleviate the sufferings of our people.”
Ambode later inspected the Badagry Deep Sea Port ‎project, promising that the state government would give adequate support to the initiative.
He assured the communities within the location of the project that their interests would be protected.
‎He explained that the Sea Port, on completion, would be the biggest in the African continent.
“The land space for the Deep Sea Port is over 1,000 hectares, of which we have just been told that there’s going to be a Free Trade Zone and then a container terminal that we are going to have here.
“We already know that the investors have done the best they can. We have Mearsk in the bouquet of investors, who have signed on to this project and what that means for us is that we are going to have the largest cargo container port in Africa, situated in Badagry,”Ambode said.
