Sanwo-Olu Releases Photos Of The Remodelled Allen Roundabout (See PHOTOS)




Jide Sanwo-Olu, the Executive Governor of Lagos State recently published photos of the remodelled Allen Roundabout on Instagram.

The remodelled Allen roundabout is part of an ongoing traffic management approach. The government calls it  ‘junction improvement work’.

The remodelling entailed the removal of the roundabouts.  It also involved separate streams of traffic through Traffic Signal Lights (TSL).  This will recognise the densities of traffic streams and give priorities accordingly.

In the post by the Lagos state governor, he wrote:

“After embarking on the task of identifying all the traffic prone areas in Lagos, we were able to identify 4 roundabouts in some densely populated locations.

We therefore immediately set in motion processes for removing these roundabouts. One of which is the Allen roundabout.

Pls find above the before and after pictures”.

In 2019, the Babajide Sanwo-Olu administration identified 60 areas across the state where it hoped modify to allow for better traffic flow and reduce travel time.
