Ogun Government mobilises contractors back to abandoned road projects

Ongoing work on the Lafenwa-Rounda road in Abeokuta, the State Capital

Construction work on the Lafenwa-Rounda Road in Abeokuta and other abandoned road projects across Ogun State has resumed.

In a statement made available to Echotitbits by the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on New Media, Emmanuel Ojo, the Ogun state Government said contractors have now been mobilized to resume work on the Lafenwa-Rounda Road, which was abandoned by the immediate past administration.

“The last administration began the project but later left it uncompleted, bringing untold hardship to road users, pedestrians and residents within the axis, with regular traffic congestion, car wear and tear, and business disruption.

“As a road connecting Abeokuta, the State Capital with some major towns in Yewa Land and neighbouring Oyo State, the Lafenwa-Rounda Road has been declared by the Government as a viable road which it is keen on completing on the shortest possible time”, the statement read.

The state government also noted that work has equally resumed on several other roads that include Kuto Bridge and the surrounding road, Elega, Panseke-Adigbe, Adatan-Car Wash, Owode-Ilaro, among others that were started by the immediate past administration but left uncompleted.
