…Says Makeshift Repairs Are Ongoing on Affected Roads
The Lagos State Public Works Corporation (LSPWC) has said that the repairs on damaged roads will resume during the dry season, adding that necessary makeshift solutions would be created for “noticeable potholes” during the rainy season.
The General Manager, LSPWC, Engineer Olufemi Daramola, in a radio intervew, Thursday said the agency is committed to rehabilitating damaged roads in the state.
He disclosed that since November, the agency has rehabilitated over 260 roads across the State.
Daramola also said that makeshift maintenance is ongoing on some major roads in the state.
According to him, “Roads like Oba Akran for which the state is looking for a Public-Private Partnership financing model will continue to be properly maintained untill a willing investor is secured.”
While acknowledging terrible situation of some roads across the State, he insisted that the present Sanwo-olu led administration has effected more repairs on the city’s roads than the previous administration.
He stressed that with the rainy season at its peak, the agency will continue to intervene on critical and strategic roads with granite boulders and interlocking paving stone to repair potholes.
Daramola appealed to members of the public to treat the roads as a major public asset and also protect them against environmental pollution and uncovering of manholes.
“All these abuses contribute to road failure and general dilapidation of road infrastructure,” he said.
