Governor of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu has commissioned a Network of roads with a bridge linking the Soluyi Community in Kosofe Local Government Area.
The Construction of Network of Roads within Soluyi Community in Kosofe Local Government Area was awarded to Messrs Xenon Construction Limited in September, 2017. The project consists of a network of nine (9) roads.
In his statement, the governor said, “Today bears a testimony to the fulfilment of our administration’s promise to ensure continuity of Governance by completing projects that were inherited from the previous administration, especially those that are directly beneficial to the well-being of our people.
In addition to initiating new projects, “we have also expended huge resources on the completion of several projects which cut across different sectors in all parts of the state.
One of such is the Soluyi community, a strategic settlement with a fast growing population in need of infrastructural renewal”. he said
Further more, the governor also stated that, the project prompted the decision to prioritize the completion of the network of roads, that we commissioned today. With a total length of 2.840km, including a bridge, these roads will serve a population of more than 300,000 people, within the Soluyi-Araromi-Ifako-Gbagada Communities.
They will also serve as alternative routes and by-pass, for motorists within the Soluyi Community to the Third Mainland Bridge, and Apapa-Oworonsoki Expressway via the Third Axial underpass. Also it will perennial environmental and infrastructural challenges facing the community, including flooding.
There will be an improved quality of life and the productivity of residents, reduce maintenance cost on vehicles, and reduce the cost of doing business and earning a livelihood in the area.
