7. Senator Rashidi Ladoja Circular Road, Ibadan

The 110-kilometer Senator Rashidi Ladoja circular road is a multi-billion-naira priority project by the governor of Oyo state, Seyi makinde.

It consists of four sections; the South-East wing which is 32.2 km; North-East wing which is 20.8 km; North-West wing which is 33 km and South-West wing which is 24 km. the south west wing provides a by-pass for travelers, goods and freight commuting through Ibadan along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

6. Ojota Opebi link bridge

Lagos, Nigeria’s bustling trade hub, faces increasing congestion on its roads, particularly in the Ikeja-Ojota area. To address this, Julius Berger is constructing a 4.52-kilometer link bridge and approach roads between Opebi and Mende, as requested by the Lagos state government.

Despite challenging soil conditions, the project involves extensive sand filling to create a temporary working platform.

5. 4th mainland bridge

The Fourth Mainland Bridge, a 38-kilometer project underway in Lagos, Nigeria, will link Lagos Island to Ikorodu, traversing the Lagos Lagoon and various areas like Langbasa, Eti-Osa, and Lekki. With eight lanes and allowance for a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) lane, it’s poised to be Africa’s second-longest bridge upon completion.

4. Teslim Balogun stadium rehabilitation

Construction of Teslim Balogun Stadium began in the mid-1980s but was abandoned, only to be resumed in the 2000s using the original design. Completed in 2007, the stadium’s facilities and design are now outdated. Currently, a comprehensive upgrade is underway to modernize it.

3. Ogun Agro cargo airport

The Ogun Agro-Cargo Airport, currently under construction in Ogun State, is strategically positioned at the state’s center, with convenient access to two major highways: the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway to the west and the Sagamu–Benin Expressway to the south.

This airport serves as a vital cargo alternative to alleviate congestion at the busy Lagos airport, providing enhanced logistical capabilities for the region.

2. Lekki epe international airport

In response to the need for expanded air travel infrastructure, Lagos is planning the construction of the Lekki-Epe International Airport. This modern facility aims to relieve congestion at Murtala Muhammed International Airport while meeting the increasing demand for both domestic and international flights. By improving connectivity, the airport will elevate Lagos as a key aviation hub in West Africa.
