27, 000 Lagos Sanitation Workers To Begin Work Soon – Ambode

BY GEORGE OKOJIE, Lagos

Lagos State governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode has said the 27,500 sanitation workers employed in line with its Cleaner Lagos Initiative designed to make all parts of the State clean, would commence work in the next three weeks.

Ambode stated this while commissioning the multiple Lay-by and Slip Road in Agboyi Ketu Local Council Development Area of the state.

The Governor who also launched the Intelligence Transport System (ITS), the e-ticketing for commuters using the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), the Ojota BRT Depot and the new complex for the Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority known as LAMATA Place, said the initiatives were critical components of the ground plan to scale up the integrated transport management system.

He said the project was a significant milestone in drastically reducing the traffic along the corridor, adding that its completion would no doubt impact directly on travel time as the targeted reduction of traffic along the length of the Third Mainland Bridge to the entire stretch of the axis, moving towards Old Toll Gate and the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway would be accomplished.

“This project is one of the major interventions in recent time by this administration.

There is the multiple lay-by at Oworonshoki, the car wash Layby, slip road at Olopomeji, the several see through fence and the recently launched lay-by at Alapere bus stop.

“Without doubt, this administration has dedicated considerable resources to the fulfillment of its initiatives of providing basic elements or roads and transport infrastructure. This obviously is in tandem with the fact that the importance of transportation to our economy cannot be over emphasized,” he said.

On his part, the Acting Commissioner for Transportation, Prince Anofiu Elegushi, urged the traders and residents to take ownership of the facility by making sure that the purpose for which the lay-bys were constructed was not defeated.
