It is long overdue. The number of deaths recorded at that Berger road is high. In a bid to curb traffic menace in the state, Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has approved the construction of a pedestrian bridge at Ojodu Berger Bus Stop.
“We have seen that Berger needs a foot bridge and immediately the engineers are going to go to work and we will make sure that we put something there.
“In addition to the footbridge, the state government would also ensure that it makes the road free at all times, because whatever happens there, will have a backlash on the 3rd Mainland bridge which can even extend to the Oworonshoki end,” Ambode said.
Speaking, yesterday after inspecting Dopemu in Agbado Oke-Odo Local Council Development Area, Ambode added that, ”We’ve been to 3rd Mainland, Oworonshoki, Ketu, Abule-Egba, Alimosho and Mile 12. That’s not the end of the story. We’re still going to Apapa and Mile 2. The truth is that we must start to have solutions to our traffic challenges in the state and that’s what we are doing.
“I have here with me, heads of agencies that are concerned with the traffic situation. I like them to speak to you directly and let you know that we are together as a team, you are going to start seeing solutions to the traffic challenges soon.
“It’s not enough for us to stay in our offices believing that we can find solutions to the traffic challenges of the state. So, we decided to go round to see how we can improve on the worsening traffic.
“What we have done in the last three hours is to show that we are greatly concerned about the traffic gridlock that we have been experiencing in the last few months.”
