Sanwo-Olu promises efficient, sustainable infrastructure

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has renewed commitment towards providing efficient and sustainable infrastructure to meet with the growing demands for the future.

He said the projected increase in number of vehicles and the subsequent rise in traffic volumes were responsible for traffic congestion and infrastructural pressure.

Sanwo-Olu spoke at the 20th International Civil Engineering Conference of Nigerian Institution of Civil Engineers, “Eko Akete 2022,” with the theme, “Sustainable Civil Infrastructure Development in a Challenging Economy,” held at the Podium International Events, Ikeja, Lagos.

The governor, represented by his Special Adviser on Works and Infrastructure, Aramide Adeyoye, said that construction in the roads and highways sector had significantly increased in recent years.

Sanwo-Olu, who received the fellowship certificate and honours regalia at the event, said that to improve efficiency and lower the impact on environment, giving the present administration’s thrust on the sector, innovative materials and methods (cold asphalt patching and rigid pavements) automation and machine control technologies in the construction sector had been encouraged by his administration.

He said that his administration would continue to leverage technology to transform the state’s economy while easing impediments for businesses to flourish.

National Chairman of the institution, Dr. Jang Tanko, in his address, commended the governor for the achievements in infrastructure.

He said that the institution would continue to strive to create an enabling regulatory environment for engineering to grow.
