Earlier, Legit.ng reported that in a bid to end the usual gridlock on major roads, the state government had begun improvements of some junctions.
This was confirmed by the commissioner for transportation in the state, Frederic Oladeinde, on Friday, December 27.
Oladeinde said that the move is one of Governor Sanwo-Olu's ways of fulfilling his promises at the beginning of his administration.
The commissioner said that the improvement of junctions will be done in areas like 2nd Roundabout Lekki/Epe Expressway, Ikotun, Allen Avenue and Maryland.
He further explained that the junctions needs expansion as they can no longer meet the needs of the growing population of the state.
On his part, the commissioner for information and strategy, Omotoso, called on Lagosians to be patient with the state government as it continues to make efforts towards tackling the issue of gridlock.
