Road Network Efficiency Improvement:

As part of its responsibilities, LAMATA has continued to improve on the quality of roads specified under the Declared Road Network (DRN) which is under its supervision. Since the commencement of Lagos Urban Transport Project (LUTP 1) in 2005, substantial IDA funds have been invested in this component due to the deplorable state of roads that existed before LUTP interventions on the 632 km DRN, identified as main bus public transport routes. Maintaining, upgrading and rehabilitating the strategic road network is vital for proper planning and development of other sub-sector modes (Bus, BRT, Rail, Ferry, Traffic Management System, Non-Motorised Transport), within an effective integrated multimode public transport system. There were basically 4 types of road maintenance interventions implemented under this component. These are routine, recurrent, periodic and rehabilitation.

# Classification of Maintenance Details of works
1 Routine Works involve drainage clearing to reduce flooding, road sweeping and cleaning, vegetation trimming and haulage of disposable materials.
2 Recurrent Works involve filling or sealing of cracks, repair of potholes, treatment of swellings, depressions, etc. on the roads.
3 Periodic Works involve application of asphalt overlays, reconstruction of walkways, road markings and installation of concrete lined drains to control flooding. They also involve some minor Traffic System Measures such as signage and traffic light installation at some junctions
4 Rehabilitation The rehabilitation works involve reconstruction of pavements and application of an overlay of 50-millimetre thick hot rolled asphalted wearing course. It also involves the reconstruction of drainage systems, kerbs and pedestrian walkways.

Routine & Recurrent Maintenance:

405 routine maintenance contracts were awarded and implemented on the entire DRN throughout the project cycle. Under recurrent maintenance, 104 contracts were awarded and implemented on 275km of roads during the same period.

Periodic Maintenance:

Interventions were carried out and completed on 45km of roads. These are;

  • Akerele, Bode Thomas, Tejuosho, Olatunde Onimole, Kushimo, Enitan, Olubunmi Alonge & Agbebi [All Surulere]

  • Town Planning [Ilupeju], Little & St. Finbarr’s [Yaba], Demurin [Ketu], Fola Agoro & Pedro [Bariga], Community [Ojo]

Rehabilitation Maintenance:

Interventions were carried out and completed on 51.5km of roads. These are;

  • Alaba/Ojo-Igbede & Old Ojo [Ojo], Adetola, Babs Animashaun, Ojerinde & Fagbenro [Surulere]
  • Bishop Oluwole, Saka Tinubu, Idejo, Kofo Abayomi, Apese, Ologun Agbaje, Eletu Ogabi, Agoro Odiyan & Ogalade Close [All V/Island] & Keffi [Ikoyi]

  • Mile12-Jibowu & Jibowu-Mile 12 [Ikorodu Road Service Lane]
  • Segregated busways along Mile12-CMS BRT corridor
  • Mobil intersection at Ogba

Other Road Interventions:

On behalf of LASG, LAMATA commenced implementation of the following road maintenance projects in 2010:

  • Rehabilitation maintenance of Abagbon Close, Amodu Ojikutu Street and Ibiyinka Olorunibe Close [All V/Island Lagos]. [completed]
  • Recurrent maintenance works on selected roads within the metropolis. [Ongoing]
  • Channelization of Ogba drainage system to Omole Phase 1 gorge. [Ongoing]

  • Clearing of all debris along the road way
  • Scarification of existing asphaltic bituminous surface
  • Removal of any unsuitable materials to the required depth
  • Grassing to slope of embankment, shoulders and roundabout:
  • Provision of sand for filling to make up level
  • Desilting of concrete side drains and culvert
  • Provision and construction of concrete side drains
  • Provision of precast concrete grade 25 slab on walkway as directed
  • Provision, spreading and compaction of sharp sand material as sub-base
  • Provision, spreading and compaction of crushed stone as base course materials to receive pre- cast interlocking blocks
  • Provision of concrete kerbs including haunching as directed
