Pictures From Expansion And Reconstruction Of The Oshodi-Airport Road

For decades, the stretch of road connecting Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos to Oshodi was a national disgrace.

The road, which is a gateway into the country, offered first time visitors a very uncomplimentary first impression of Nigeria.

From one administration to the other, the road remained in an atrocious condition – one that required urgent attention in order to salvage the nation’s image.

Sadly, the resuscitation of the road, which falls within the purview of the federal government, was completely ignored.

However, in May 2017, and with facilitation by Vice President Yemi Osibanjo, the federal government finally gave the approval for the Lagos State government to commence a total reconstruction of the road.

In the spirit of the regeneration and urbanization of Lagos state by the Ambode-led administration, work begun on the project in September 2017.

The project will see the transformation of the road from 4 lanes to 10 lanes from Oshodi to the International Airport. It would also feature an interchange and flyover that would drop commuters to the Local Airport.

Work is ongoing on the road.

The work is being handled by the construction firm of Hitech Construction Company Limited.
