“We realised that after completing the bridge, there is a gap that will be created and that is why we have decided that the Agege-Berger road should be expanded to reduce traffic within the axis.

The Special Adviser hinted that one of the major facilities that would accompany the expansion works is provision of a dedicated Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) lane to move hundreds of Lagos residents possibly coming from other states that might have alighted at Berger bus stop to link their community with ease

“This will afford the people the opportunity to connect Agege and Abule-Egba from Berger axis of the state. That is what we have slated for next year. We have started working on the design as I speak and I am sure that by the end of the fourth quarter, we will be done with all the designs and cost of the road ahead of next year’s budget”, Adeyoye added.
