Fourth Mainland Bridge to be completed 2027 – Sanwo-Olu

The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, says residents should expect the groundbreaking ceremony for the Fourth Mainland Bridge in the next couple of months.

He also promised accelerated development in the state in the next four years.

According to a statement issued by the state on Sunday, Sanwo-Olu said this during the inauguration of the newly-upgraded Oba Sekumade Road in Ipakodo in the Ikorodu area of the state, on Friday.

He said, “What we are about is ensuring that the next four years come with bigger dividends delivered faster than we have done in our first tenure. There will be accelerated development across the city in next dispensation. Ikorodu is part of the greater Lagos that is rising.

“In the next couple months, we will be doing groundbreaking for the Fourth Mainland Bridge, which will cut across major sections of the Sagamu-Ikorodu Expressway before finally opening to the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway. We are committed to delivering this project in our second term to completely open Ikorodu to the world.”

In her remarks, the Special Adviser to the governor on Works and Infrastructure, Aramide Adeyoye, said the upgrade of Oba Sekumade Road to a rigid pavement dual carriageway did not only solve traffic problems experienced on the highway, but also solved flooding issues threatening adjoining residential communities.

“I believe that with the rehabilitation and upgrade of this road, the challenge of flooding and inadequate capacity will now become a thing of the past. This in turn will also translate into improved free flow of traffic and a much-needed reduction in travel time for business owners in the area and the motoring public at large,” she said.
