Governor of Lagos State , Akinwunmi Ambode, inspected the ongoing construction of the Pen Cinema Flyover on Tuesday ,  he assured Lagosians that the project would be delivered in 10 months.

Ambode, accompanied by key members of his cabinet, said the 1.4-kilometre bridge, which will run from Agege to the Old Abeokuta Road, will be a key intervention strategy by his administration to address the perennial traffic in the area.

Ambode said although the project might cause some inconveniences, the end result would change the face of Agege forever.

“We want to reduce the sufferings that arise from the traffic congestion in this neighbourhood, so we decided to construct the Pen Cinema Flyover to decongest this neighbourhood.

“But you can see that I have inconvenienced you by the demolition that has taken place here. It is temporary. In the next 10 months, we will deliver this project; by November 2018,” he said.

Appealing to residents and community leaders to cooperate with the contractor ahead of the closure of some of the roads in Agege from Thursday, January 4, Ambode assured residents, whose property were demolished to give way for the project that they would be adequately compensated.

The Commissioner for Waterfront Infrastructure Development, Mr. Ade Akinsanya, noted that the project, on completion, would permanently address the gridlock in the Agege area.

Ambode also inspected the ongoing construction of the Oshodi Transport Interchange, which is expected to be delivered by July 2018.
