The Lagos State Government has come out to explain the reason behind the delay of the repairs and reopening of the burnt Airport Road Flyover, along Oshodi-Apapa Expressway, Lagos.

The Special Adviser to Lagos State Governor, on Works and Infrastructure, Mrs Aramide Adeyoye recently spoke on the issue.

According to him, a lack of fund is the reason for the delay thus far, and the impact of the three hours inferno was also massive on the structure.

She added that, unfortunately, the tragedy was not prepared for so there is currently no planned budget for it.

His words, “We have inspected the flyover, along with Commissioner for Transportation, Dr Frederic Oladeinde, and the Federal Controller of Works because the affected structure belongs to the Federal Government. Tests were carried out and result obtained.”

“The impact of the three hours inferno was massive on the structure and you ask yourself, in that circumstance you can not explain it.”

“The tragedy was not prepared for, there was no budget for it. So, it is hard to fund such an unforeseen occurrence.”

“However, the inconvenience to the motoring public is being addressed. We are not unaware of the pains the public is experiencing over the continued closure.”

“I assure you that the fund is being sourced for presently and as soon as it’s ready we move to site and complete on time. We implore the motoring public to be patient onnus and continue to use alternative routes for now and comply with traffic officers on road directional signs among others.”
