Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode has assured Lagosians of his administration’s determination to complete the Mile 2-Badagry Road Expansion project in quick time.

Governor Ambode who gave the assurance when he inspected the Mile 2-Badagry road expansion works, which is being expanded to a 10-lane way, said the contractor working on the project would be mobilised to ensure its completion.

“What we have come here to do is to specifically ensure that the contractor here is mobilised. It’s also important for us that the contractor takes it as a major priority”.

“The Mile 2 Badagry Expressway is very important to all of us and like we said, it’s a project that we must finish. It’s a project that I would like to be completed within the shortest possible time, so I’ll like to see greater work done on the road project itself”, he said.

On the Blue Line Light Rail project, the Governor said efforts will be made to ensure that the Mile 2 to National Theatre Corridor is completed soon.

“We should be able to put to use whatever has been done from Mile 2 to Marina. Immediately they commence work on the road project from Mile 2 towards Badagry, once we pass the aspect of Okokomaiko, we should be able to do the Blue Rail from Mile 2 to Okokomaiko”.

He urged the contractor to increase the pace of work on the project just as he assured them that the government will address the challenges they might be encountering towards finishing the project.

“What we expect is that notwithstanding the rain or whatever, the immediate mobilisation should be done and then the contractor should also increase the pace of work and that’s what we’ll like to see and to let you know that whatever it is that are encumbrances to completing this project, we’re all going to sit down to make sure that we alleviate the sufferings of our people”.
