The Lagos State Government has restated its commitment towards improving the standards of living and well-being of the entire residents of the State, just as it began immediate rehabilitation and upgrading of the second segment of the arterial/inner roads in Epe Local Government Area of the State.

Speaking at a Stakeholders’ meeting on Thursday at the Michael Otedola College of Primary Education, Naforija, Epe, Abiola Anifowoshe, Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, said the road construction was part of the infrastructure development vision of the state government.

He said there is no doubt that Epe Town and environs is presently witnessing influx of people and increased traffic volume as a result of industrial and commercial growth arising from various development like Dangote Oil Refinery, Air and sea ports as well as industries within the Lekki Free Trade Zone.

The commissioner added that the road, when completed would improve road connectivity and accommodate the expected increased traffic volume arising from industrial and commercial growth, while adding that it would also eliminate potential traffic gridlock as well as enhancing property value.
