Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has assured residents and motorists that the Agege Pen Cinema flyover bridge will be completed and commissioned for use by June ending or early July 2020.
He stated June/July date was the commitment given by the contractors.
Sanwo-Olu also visited on-going work at the first segment of construction at the Lagos-Badagry Expressway, which is open to motorists.
The Agege Pen Cinema flyover, which connects Oba Ogunji road where it takes off and drops off at Agunbiade on the other side, also has a railway underpass and three abatements, splitting into adjoining streets all around Agege Pen Cinema.
Sanwo-Olu said: “At the completion not only would we see a major traffic gridlock improvement, we would also see real estate value coming back to the entire neighbourhood here and you could see better quality of life because it is all geared to ensure we continue to build smart environment and smart cities.
“You can see road infrastructure, bridge infrastructure, all three coming to solve traffic, transportation and movement of human beings from one point to the other, and you can see economies, businesses coming up to flourish here.”
He appealed to citizens and residents around the area to bear with the government a little bit more and to exercise more patience and cooperate with the contractor, who has engaged many of them on site.
