Last year, the Lagos State Government flagged off the reconstruction of the Eti-Osa-Lekki-Epe expressway. The ongoing project was flagged off by the Governor of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu on 1st November 2020.

The first phase of the road project, which will cover 18.75km, stretching from Eleko to T-Junction in Epe, is expected to be completed in 20 months.

To maintain its sustainability and longevity, the Messers Craneburg Construction company has adopted a concrete pavement on the Eleko to T-Junction in Epe.

The government’s intervention of the dilapidated roads would see the entire stretch from Eleko to Epe dualised on the rigid pavement, with three lanes on each side. A lane on each side will be dedicated as toll weighbridges only for heavy-duty vehicles.

When completed, the road will connect several communities, including Eleko, Onosa, Alatishe, Aiyeteju, Ajaganagbe, Oko Orisa, Ilasan, Lekki, Ibeju-Lekki, and Epe.





The contractor, Craneburg Construction, will also build reinforced concrete drains, culverts, median barriers as well as install traffic lights on the roads.
