The ever busy Lagos Airport Road for several years has been in a state of disrepair, thereby causing chronic congestion which makes life miserable for commuters along the corridor.
Road users spend several hours in traffic on a daily basis, with high exposure to pollution, loss of man-hours, as well as insecurity.
In order to address this menace, the Lagos State Government engaged Planet Projects Limited in the provision of engineering works, including detailed design, re-designing and re-construction of the corridor with the aim of expanding the corridor into 10-lane Carriageway, three-lane main/express carriageway and two-lane service carriageway in both directions along the entire corridor separated by a median, pedestrian walkway at outer edges of the service lanes.
This road infrastructure also includes two fly-over bridges (across the toll gate intersection and a U-turn Ramp bridge at the Mafoluku intersection), 5 Pedestrian Bridges, 9 Lay-bys, Traffic Signalisation, Lane Markings, Street Lighting, Decorative Fencing and provision for Public Transport/bus service including lay-bys and bus stop facilities.
Planet Projects has concluded all the engineering works, including detailed designs, traffic surveys, BEMEs, and the company is currently supervising the construction of the road.
On completion, the traffic congestion would be drastically reduced, while ensuring that Lagos and Nigeria have a befitting “International Gateway”.
