According to a statement released on Wednesday, Lateef Somide, general manager of the Lagos State Public Works Corporation, provided this assurance while touring some of the locations of ongoing road maintenance projects at Itire-Lawanson Road, Surulere, Orishigun Street Ketu, and Agbowa-Itoikin Road.

Somide said that because of the continuous rain, potholes have appeared more frequently on many roads, especially those that need to be completely reconstructed because they are past their prime.

He said, “Under the Babatunde Sanwo-Olu administration, the agency’s operations have been configured to maintain a presence on Lagos roads in all seasons and that is why you will see our men fixing the roads even in the rain with interlocking paving stones as the hot asphalt premix normally used is not suitable for wet season.

“In order to minimize the challenges posed by bad roads to free movement of persons and goods during the wet season, the agency ensures that palliative interventions are carried out with the use of boulders on portions that are almost degenerating into craters while the use of cold mixed asphalt and interlocking paving stones are also employed either as palliative or outright fixing of some roads, depending on the terrain.

“The corporation swiftly deployed its men to many parts of the state immediately the rains abated so as to rapidly fix the potholes, using hot asphalt premix through both day and night operations. We are taking full advantage of the dry weather witnessed so far in the past one week to treat many defective road portions day and night.”

Somide added that over 20 roads have been maintained using hot asphalt premix and 25 roads were treated with boulders to provide temporary relief.
