Flooding: FG cleans Lagos highway drains


To avert flooding on highways, the Federal Controller of Works in Lagos, Mr Adedamola Kuti, on Sunday said the Ministry of Power, Works and Housing had begun cleaning of drains.

Kuti told the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos that clearing of drains had begun in Ijora and evacuation of drainage channels on highways across Lagos would commence soon.

“For us to enjoy the rainy season, we need to ensure that some of these areas as we have identified are opened up for proper drainage,” he said..

He listed the inner routes where rehabilitation works had been completed to include Adekunle, Herbert Macaulay, Sabo, Alagomeji and WAEC Junction roads.

“And we have done some work around Iganmu area, we have intervened somewhere around Barracks in Surulere as well as Ojuelegba,” he said.

On potholes on some sections of the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway, Kuti said that the ministry was collaborating with the Lagos State Government on the repairs.  PUNCH.
