Construction works are ongoing on Lekki Regional Roads in Lagos, which will decongest traffic within the Lekki sub-region by providing access to Victoria Garden City (VGC), Ikate-Elegushi, Ikota, Chevron Drive, Ajiran, Pinnock Beach Estate, Gracefield Island, Orange Island and serve as an alternative to the Eti Osa-Epe Expressway.

  1. Good job by Lagos State Government for resurrecting the construction of Lekki Regional Road which has been on the Regional Planning Scheme for decades.Kudos to the HE Sanwo Olu,SSA for W&I ,the PS and other government officials who make it possible.
    Given the route plan,where will the express road discharge the daily heavy traffic volume to or terminate.Consideration should be taking of Lekki Phase I Admiralty Way presently congested with vehicular traffic going to Ikoyi through the Lekki Ikoyi Link bridge daily during peak and evening periods now that the Toll Plaza will son start functioning.The new road should give relief to Lekki Phase I Estate which is no more a first choice estate due to the daily escutiating heavy traffic passing through it with all the attendant environmental pollution.God bless the State Government,the Governor,the SSA of W &I,the Past W&I ,Directors and other agencies connected with the achievement of this project.
