Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has reassured that his administration will do all within its power to rid the state of everything causing gridlock on roads.
He spoke at the weekend while inspecting the removal of second Lekki roundabout as part of junction improvements for free flow of vehicular movements along the Lekki corridors.
The government had embarked on the removal of some roundabouts identified as the major causes of traffic jams being experienced by motorists.
Four roundabouts including Ikotun, second roundabout on the Lekki-Epe Expressway, Allen Avenue roundabout and Maryland will be removed to pave the way for road expansion and free flow of traffic.
The government, through the Ministry of Transportation, said the removal of some roundabouts and street furniture such as giant bill boards would give room for road expansion and strategically ease off traffic congestion in some parts of the metropolis.
