Road maintenance slowed down by rain — LSPWC


The Lagos State Public Works Corporation has said the pace of road maintenance across the state has been slowed down by the rains.

The corporation, however, said despite the rains, it would continue to creatively intervene in parts of the state where roads are deplorable.

In a statement by its Director of Public Affairs, Samuel Ayetutu, LSPWC stated that it had been making “good use of dry days in between the rains” to fix bad portions of Lagos roads.

The statement quoted LSPWC General Manager, Lateef Somide, as saying,“While one must acknowledge the fact that our operations have been largely slowed down by the rains, we are still fixing roads in various parts of the state through our strategies anchored on using various methods to provide relief to road users as well as effective monitoring of the weather which enables us to take full advantage of the dry days in between the rains.”

“Asphalt premix is the major approach to fixing roads, but production and usage of asphalt in the wet season is not an efficient method.

“This is why we deploy our men to fix some roads with the use of interlocking paving stones while several roads are being treated with palliative methods, especially with the use of boulders to provide temporary relief pending full rehabilitation during clement weather.”

According to him, almost all the roads calling for attention across the state “have been captured in a repository through information obtained from our engineers covering various zones, official social media handles, phone calls, emails media reports and other channels open to members of the public.”

Somide assured Lagosians of LSPWC’s preparedness to “aggressively fix all roads as the weather becomes more clement in pursuance of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s commitment to making Lagos roads remain motorable all year round.”
