Following the present poor state of some roads caused by the rain, the Lagos State Public Works Corporation (LSPWC) has earmarked about 90 roads for rehabilitation.
The roads to be rehabilitated are majorly in the metropolis with high vehicular movement.
Revealing this in Lagos, the new helmsman of the Corporation, Engineer Ayotunde Shodeinde, said the present state of roads in the state has become a source of concern to Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.
Shodeinde disclosed that the Corporation has decided to rehabilitate 90 roads within the next two weeks inspite of the rains.
“We cannot continue to blame weather condition for the hardship being caused our people by potholes,” he said, adding that “the corporation will take advantage of any dry period to quickly move to site and carry out maintenance operations, be it during the day or night time.”
