It has been established by the State Government that some estates, buildings/ structures have encroached on the Right of Way (RoW) of the Regional Road in Lekki axis.

 

The Road was first conceived by Lagos State Government in the Lagos Metropolitan Master Plan (1980-2000) and was retained in the approved Lekki Comprehensive Master Plan 2013.

 

Furthermore, the Lagos State granted title to land totaling about 500 hectares and issued layout approval (1991) wherein four (4) major roads were recognized namely, Coastal Road and Lekki-Epe Expressway, Southern part of Elegushi Land, Regional Road and Lagoon at the Northern part of the Elegushi layout, all running parallel to one another. The Roads have been envisioned to engender social-economic and transportation development of the State.

 

In line with the THEMES agenda of Mr. Governor, Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu, the Regional Road is precursor to the proposed Fourth Mainland Bridge and a promised dividend of democracy to the good people of Lagos State in order to improve traffic and transportation system within the State.

 

Recent observations revealed that this very important transportation corridor has been encumbered by physical developments (including shanties) which negate the objectives of which the Road was conceived.

 

Consequently, TAKE NOTICE that by virtue of Section 21(1) (a) of Lagos State Urban and Regional Planning and Development Law, 2015, I, Dr. Idris Okanla Salako, the Honourable Commissioner, Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development (MPP&UD) hereby REVOKE in part, a section of Elegushi Chieftaincy Family Layout that falls within the following coordinates:.
