Ambode Signs MoU for 4th Mainland Bridge3The Lagos state government on Wednesday signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the construction of a 4th Mainland bridge in Lagos.

The 38km bridge and expressway will serve as an alternative route to the Eastern axis and decongest traffic in the State.

Speaking during the signing, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode said:

The proposed alignment passes through Lekki, Langbasa and Baiyeiku towns along the shoreline of the Lagos Lagoon estuaries, further running through Igbogbo River Basin and crossing the Lagos Lagoon estuaries to Itamaga Area in Ikorodu. It then crosses the Itoikin road and the Ikorodu – Sagamu Road to connect Isawo inward Lagos Ibadan Expressway at Ojodu Berger axis. The Bridge would be made up of 8 interchanges to facilitate effective interconnectivity between different parts of the State.

This structure will be a Four-lane dual carriageway with each comprising 3 lanes and 2metres hard shoulder on each side. The bridge will be constructed to have a generous median to allow for both future carriageway expansion and light rail facility.

There is no gainsaying the fact that huge benefits will be derived from this project but most importantly, make life more comfortable for Lagosians.

The governor also noted that “this is the first time in the history of the State that we are embarking on the construction of a long-span bridge and expressway without Federal funding; and also having a project to be funded solely by the private sector”.

      Ambode has so much impressed me.
      He isn’t arrogant, selfish and saucy like the other one.
      I support you wholesomely.
      Great job. Even if people have to pay,its value adding.

      Nene, Learn to admit when you’re wrong…

      The intent of your sentence “I support you wholesomely” was to imply that you fully support Ambode… “I support you fully”

      In that instance, the correct adverb is wholly… “I support you wholly”

      Like you said, wholesomely is an adverb that is indicative of good health, well being, good manners.

      It’s use is “A wholesome young man. Wholesome foods, a wholesome public image, a wholesome plan” etc.

      If this still confuses you, don’t use the word.

      Since we know when/where wholesome would be used, Wholesomely’s use therefore is:

      “The young man was wholesomely raised!”
      “The food was wholesomely delightful!”
      The plan was wholesomely thought out”

      Exactly, the private sector won’t put down 844bn naira without a solid plan on recouping their investment + interest.
      4th mainland bridge will be tolled . . . heavily

    Ehn ehn, that is what we want! No more federal government did not give us money excuses but getting results in other ways. This is significant progress. Now, we want progress reports and results.

  6. Good job

    Wholesomely? or wholly.. You people won’t “kee” person on BN.

    Good one from Ambode, hopefully other governors are taking note.

      Shush brat.
      Who told you other governors aren’t trying?
      And wholesomely means salutary, healthy, wholesome and very appropriate.
      Insecurity is a problem for you. Get a cure.

      A lot of governors are doing well in their respective states so keep your advice cos i know where you are headed.
      As for wholesome, it means complete, undiluted,unadulterated,healthful so keep your gossip too.
      No thanks

    Apart from water corporation’s recurrent f-ups, Ambode is doing well (9ja standard o).

    Thankfully the private sector is fully finding this.

    I hope they take this private sector led model with the rail plans as well. We need quicker return times on infrastructures.

    @dizzy, we are already paying tolls on Lagos roads due to traffic congestion and the money we expend on repairing our cars driving on so many potholes! So long as this private consortium delivers a first-class project, we do not mind paying what is effectively a USAGE fee – ie, if you do not use, you do not have to pay! Eko o ni baje!
