This is supposed to be an international road linking West Africa into Nigeria through Lagos, the commercial hub centre of the economy. You can imagine the huge amount of commerce this road brings into the economy yet, it's in total disrepair!

Maybe we have to invite another western president to visit this part of Lagos which leads to Badagry where iconic historical monuments are located before the situation is salvaged!

Trucks overturn their content due to the state of the road on almost a daily basis not to mention the damage to vehicles which ply this route and yet this road leads to many state and federal institutions! Nigeria, why are you like this?

The Lagos State government can at least make the roads motorable (gravel, stones, sand etc) while waiting on the federal government to come and do it's job.

Yes they are fixing the road... but why must they destroy everything without making another alternative for road users for the meantime? Example is iyana-iba.


Now I heard the contractors have stopped work and to resume after election... is this how we are to suffer for the next 10months to come?.. must the masses always suffer because the government want to get something right?

The road is not funny at all. People spend over 3hours on one spot. Others may have to trek long distance to get to their destination. Lagos state and Federal Government should help us. People are suffering everyday.

But work is going on, on that road sha. I hate APC with a passion, but I must tell you that work has been going on, on that road 6days a week by the chinese construction company. And it's not been easy because of the huge trafic of vehicles and illigal structures around there. They even had to skip a police station opposite ojo barracks after months of deliberation weather to demolish or not. Last time I checked, the construction had reached okoko. I believe by now, it might have passed iyanosashi.
Innomach:
It's like you are not current with development on that road. The road had long been abandoned. The spot on the pic is Iyanaisashi.

xana101:
oga when last did u pass that road!!! They stopped working for more than 4 months now. The road from mile 2 to Agbara is worst than how they met it. I live in Igboelerin after okoko

hugoboss70:

Abeg you report only what you know not hear say. The road is only complete from mile 2 to alakija after that its in bits and pieces. The road totally collapses at iya iba. The chinese contractors abandoned the road almost 2months ago. No work has been done there in more than a month no chinese or there workers are even on site. I cant say why d workers arent there just a lot of hearsay about contract dispute. Please once again report only what ur sure of

Like I said, I have not been in town for a few months. But when I was there, those chinese guys worked tirelessly. If they had continued, by now im sure that road will have passed iyanosashi. Iyanaisashi junction was always the worst part of that road. The front of that filling station has swallowed my tires too. So abeg make una no vex iv just not been around in a while.
