Lagos Seeks Public Restraint from Damage to Road Infrastructure


The Lagos State Public Works Corporation has appealed to Lagosians to refrain from acts that impinge on the lifespan of road infrastructure and cause severe damage to new and recently rehabilitated roads across the State.

The General Manager, Lagos State Public Works Corporation Engineer Olufemi Daramola made this appeal today in Ikeja, in response to the spate of the burning of tyres and other items on existing roads across the metropolis under the guise of scaring away armed robbers.

He stated that the Corporation is not unmindful of the alleged recent attacks on residents by armed robbers, assuring, however, that the security agencies have been directed by the government to beef up surveillance across the State.

While appealing to Community Development Associations (CDAs) to assist the Agency in enlightening members of their communities on the repercussions of their actions, the General Manager emphasised that such untoward behaviour can lead to the resurgence of potholes and damaged road furniture on recently rehabilitated roads.

The General Manager, therefore, implored Community leaders, youths and members of various communities across the State to support security agencies in their respective areas and safeguard the roads from avoidable damage.

He noted that the State government intends to focus on rehabilitating more roads after the lockdown, rather than returning to completed roads that are damaged as a result of the burning of tyres or other unwholesome practices of residents.
