Sanwo-Olu unveils seven new roads in Oniru-Victoria Island axis

On Thursday, 24 September 2020, Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu unveiled seven new roads in Oniru-Victoria Island axis.

It is huge traffic relief for residents and road users around Iru and Victoria Island axes of Lagos State, as Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu unveiled the roads.

The improved roads are within the commercial areas of Oniru and Victoria Island.

The Victoria Island-Lekki Traffic Circulation Project was delivered through Public Infrastructure Improvement Partnership (PIIP) framework, under which the State Government collaborated with Access Bank Plc and Planet Projects Limited to bring the project to reality.

Last December, Sanwo-Olu flagged off the construction of the roads, which were notorious for heavy traffic congestion that affected the growth of businesses and reduced productivity.

Cutting the ribbon to officially declared the roads open for public use on Thursday, the Governor said it was another promise fulfilled by his administration in its traffic improvement programmes.

He said the improvement and re-construction work done on the roads had enhanced road connectivity and traffic flow on the axis.

Sanwo-Olu added that the project would also reduced travel time for commuters, eliminate perennial flooding hitherto experienced in the area, and boost intermodal transportation.

He says: “One of the critical challenges experienced by residents and road users along this axis was the heavy traffic congestion occasioned by the geometric increase in traffic volume, which led to a significant reduction in productivity and growth business activities in this highly commercial location.

“As Government, we resolved to work in partnership with public-spirited corporate organisations to embark on the road improvement project. This project was executed through the Public Infrastructure Improvement Partnership (PIIP) arrangement.

“Today, I have the pleasure to hand over these improved roads to users and residents. This project has led to an improvement in road connectivity and traffic flow.

“We have also reduced travel time, eliminated perennial flooding issues, enhanced intermodal transportation. Most importantly, we have improved the health and socio-economic well being of the people through the Victoria Island–Lekki Circulation Project in Oniru Axis.”

The improved roads span a total length of 1.8 kilometres, which started from Muri Okunola Extension, to Ligali Ayorinde, Akin Olugbade, Elegba Festival Road and Yesufu Abiodun Oniru Road up to Four Points by Sheraton.
