This was disclosed by the Lagos State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Steve Ayorinde during an appearance on Frankly Speaking with Jola Sotubo.

“We’re easing the situation already. You’ll see that the inner roads are a major problem, the governor, working in sync with the local government executive secretaries, has commissioned 114 inner roads, 2 per LCDA, which means that by the middle of this year, 114 roads will have been completed, that will ease traffic because the more roads you fix, the smoother driving will become,” the commissioner said.

“In addition to that, in eight months of our administration, we have fixed, rehabilitated or repaired a total of 340 roads all across Lagos. The more roads you fix, the better for traffic.

“We have fortified LASTMA… not only that, we have also brought in mobile courts and so far, we have tried more than 600 people… That has improved traffic a lot.

“Traffic won’t disappear completely, but we can manage it better, particularly with the announcement by the governor that by December, the light rail, the Blue Line, will be ready, we’re doing a lot of investment on the waterways, we’re trying to put a lot more operators there, do a lot more regulation, invest in channelization of the waterways.

“By the time we’re able to effectively take a lot of people off the roads, let them use the train services, let them use the waterways, we know that we would have gotten somewhere,” he added.

Mr Ayorinde had earlier assured that Governor Ambode would surpass his predecessor, Babatunde Fashola by his policies and achievements.
