He said some major roads in his constituency including Mushin and Okota roads were in deplorable state, thus hindering movements and causing hardships to people in the area.
”I am calling on the Federal Government to help fix Mushin road linking the Lagos State Polytechnic to the NNPC.
”The NNPC depot is in Ejigbo, motorists haul no fewer than 350 trucks through that road daily and the situation has always been very chaotic.
”Since there is an NNPC depot in Ejigbo, I am appealing to the federal government to take responsibility of upgrading that road and the bridge across.
”If that is done, there will be some relief because you can hardly drive on that road without a breakdown and there is always a gridlock in that corridor.
”The federal government should also intervene on Okota road by rehabilitating it from Pako to Cele to ease movements on the road,” he said.
Johnson lauded the state government for the dual carriageway in Isolo road, saying the intervention had improved the flow of traffic on the road.
The lawmaker added the state government’s intervention on Airport Road was good for the image of the country, as it would give visitors a good impression.
Johnson, a former commissioner for works in the state, called for the dredging of a major canal in the area to address the problem of perennial flooding.
‘The canal is supposed to be an asset to our constituency but today, as I speak, it is a death trap.
”Once there is a downpour, everywhere is flooded. So what we are pushing for is that they should dredge the canal, so that we will be able to have enough headroom.
”So that all the estates in the area including those in Ejigbo that are usually sacked by flooding will have a new lease of life.
”We can also dredge the canal for water transportation to move people from Ejigbo to Lagos via Mile 2,” he said.
The lawmaker said he would on his part, intervene in the fixing of some inner roads in the area as part of his constituency projects.
He assured the people of the area a quality representation at the House of Representatives, saying he would work hard for the progress of his constituency.
