Lagos State government will sign a Memorandum of Understanding, MoU, with investors for the construction of the proposed 4th Mainland Bridge before the end of May.
Governor Akinwunmi Ambode made this known on Thursday, April 14, at the third quarterly town hall meeting in Ikorodu.
He said the bridge would take off from Ajah through Langbasa to Ikorodu, adding that works would begin soon to boost the state’s economy.
According to him, “many investors have shown interest in the actualisation of our dream for the 4th Mainland Bridge, which will run from Ajah to Ikorodu to Isawo and berth at Ojodu, Ikeja back to the Lagos/Ibadan Expressway”.
On his achievement in the last three months, he said major breakthroughs have been recorded in security since the launch of the N4.78 billion security equipment.
The governor added that the quick response in the rescue of the kidnapped girls in Ikorodu and the quelling of the Mile 12 riot are testimonies of the effectiveness of the state’s security system.
“I am ready to pay for information on criminals as we proceed to make Lagos crime-free. We are happy to report that crime rate has reduced in the last three months,” he said.
