It is wrong to list this project as "proposed" since it has already begun, and in fact the intiallly phase has been completed (see picture below).

UNDER fresh efforts by Lagos authorities to reduce the traffic bottleneck on the Victoria Island - Lekki corridor, construction work has begun on a new bridge ramp linking Falomo Bridge from the ever-busy Ozumba Mbadiwe Avenue on Victoria Island.

The state's executing agency for the highway, Lekki Concession Company Limited (LCC) is promoting the Falomo Bridge 'On-ramp' project and the construction of bridge substructure and superstructure has commenced in preparation for the establishment of piling and sheet piling. Senior officials of the company said, "This is a situation by which vehicles would have the opportunity to move simultaneously above each other, depending on their destinations."

The firm disclosed recently that the expansion from Exxon Mobil Bridge from four lanes to six up to first roundabout had coommenced. Activities expected at this section include creation of new roundabouts, walkways, drains, carriageway, underground service crossing/ducts, streetlights and other amenities.

The entire project comes in two phases. Phase I comprises expansion and upgrade of the 49.4 kilometre Ozumba Mbadiwe Avenue/Lekki- Epe Expressway, while Phase II involves the construction of 20 kilometres of coastal road, plus options to construct the Southern bypass. It also comprises the operation and maintenance of new road infrastructure over a 30-year concession term at an estimated project cost of N50 billion. The project is being financed by LCC, with the funds to be recovered principally through charging tolls.

Among the anticipated benefits of the public-private partnership scheme, according to state officials, are traffic decongestion, easier access to and from the Lekki-Epe corridor, breakdown and recovery assistance, ambulance service, and customer call centre. Other advantages include shorter and more predictable journey times, reduced wear and tear on motor vehicles, reduced fuel consumption by road users, as well as law enforcement, better street lighting and reduced risk of "go slow robbery".

The Managing Director of the firm, Mr. Opuiyo Oforiokuma, said construction work has witnessed significant progress.

He said: "There will be alternative routes around each of the three toll plazas. It is the Lagos State Government, and not LCC's responsibility to construct these. For example, the Oniru Market Road was constructed to provide an Alternative Route around the first toll plaza.

"The design of the new Lekki-Epe Expressway is an 'open toll road design', road users will still be able to use the expressway by turning on and off at designated entry and exit points, and by bypassing the toll plazas using the designated alternative routes. For example, the completed two kilometres section of Ozumba Mbadiwe Avenue will not have any toll plazas. If a road user stays within Victoria Island, he or she would pay no tolls for using this section of the road, or the new Falomo Bridge on-ramp that LCC is building to ease the Law School traffic bottleneck.

According to Opuiyo, construction work between kilometers two to16 is now at an advanced stage with the on-going construction of Toll Plaza 1 expected to be completed before the last quarter of 2009. Similarly, activities have commenced on Toll Plaza 2, which completion is slated for the second quarter of 2010.

He also hinted that construction of various other structures, like expansion of the Mobil Bridge, new drainage facility, renewal of electricity infrastructure, underground infrastructure ducts, among others, are in progress.

However, stakeholders have raised some issues that they considered to be at variance with the overall interest of the road users in Lagos.

Among the issues raised, the most contentious ones, apart from the issue of tolling, include the fences erected along the perimeter of the rights-of-way, closing of direct access to and from Lekki-Epe expressway, lack of feeder road to link the expressway, alleged forceful taking over of land belonging to local communities without paying them compensation, and other sundry issues bordering on the physical and finances of the local communities.

Explaining the position of the contractors on these issues, the LCC chief said the fencing of the perimeter is meant for safety precaution. "The fences are being built primarily for safety reasons, especially so that pedestrians and animals do not run across the road where fast moving traffic is passing, thereby constituting danger either to themselves or to other road users."

He said that overhead bridges would be built at some designated points to facilitate safety and convenience. On the closure of direct access to the main road to and from Lekki-Epe route, he said the closure was in line with international standards of what an expressway should be.

Concerning the taking over of land without due consultation and possibility of compensation, he said the state government was solely responsible for providing the LCC with the right-of-way, free from encumbrances, to allow LCC execute its terms of contract.
