FERMA begins repair of Lagos roads

03 December 2012, 10:12

Lagos - The Federal Roads Maintenance Agency (FERMA), says it has begun the rehabilitation of major roads in Lagos to ensure smooth rides during the Yuletide and beyond.

The FERMA Zonal Coordinator, (South West 2), Mr Oladipo Fagbamila, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), on Sunday in Lagos, that the rainy season had slowed down the repairs.

Fagbamila said that when the agency’s asphalt plant begins operations soon, the menace of potholes would be a thing of the past.

"I assure motorists of a smooth ride during Christmas because the commissioning of our asphalt plant, which is expected soon, will make us more efficient.

"There will not be any pothole on our roads and I assure all Lagosians and those travelling of smooth rides soon," he said.

He commended the Lagos State Government for selling asphalt to the agency.

Fagbamila said that Gov. Babatunde Fashola’s directive that the Lagos State Public Works Corporation (PWC) should sell asphalt to FERMA would boost its operations.

Also, the Executive Chairman of the Lagos State Public Works Corporation (PWC), Mr Gbenga Akintola ,told NAN that the corporation was proactive in carrying out repairs.

Akintola said that the corporation was always working towards ensuring it rehabilitated roads, irrespective of the season.

"We do not work because there is festival or any programme coming up, because we are proactive, we work at all time,” Akintola said.

He said that the corporation was currently working on 25 roads at different locations in Lagos, adding that the its asphalt plant would soon work at full capacity.
