Lagos Govt Begins Removal Of Roundabouts To Ease Gridlock

The Lagos State Ministry of Transportation has announced the commencement of the removal of some roundabouts identified as major causes of gridlock in the state.

Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of Lagos State, who went to inspect the removal of the Lekki 2nd roundabout, said his administration was committed to eliminating the state of gridlock.

Sanwo-Olu urged the contractors handling the projects to keep up with the current pace of work in order to ensure their completion in record time.

He also said the removal of the roundabouts and giant billboards would give room for road expansion and strategically ease traffic congestion in some parts of the metropolis.
