Lagos State Urban Renewal Agency (LASURA) has reiterated its commitment to the redevelopment of Adeniji-Adele Housing Estate on the Lagos Island.
The General Manager, LASURA, Ms. Ajibike Shomade, disclosed this while receiving the executive members of the Estate Landlords Association, led by its Chairman, Elder Femi Adeotan, on a courtesy visit to the Agency.
Shomade stated that the Agency would not relent in its efforts at making sure that the Project takes off as soon as possible, explaining that at inception the Estate was not properly designed to accommodate modern facilities like an effective drainage system, among others, thus resulting in its rapid degradation.
She disclosed that LASURA is planning to collaborate with private developers to execute the project in phases to enhance the easy and smooth movement of residents of the Estate, adding that the Agency intends to redesign the buildings for ease of construction and maintenance.
While also disclosing that there will be a reconstruction of the Adeniji-Adele Road and all the roads in the Estate, Ms. Shomade stressed that the drainage system and other infrastructure would be upgraded to complement the redevelopment project.
Chairman of the Association, Elder Femi Adeotan thanked the General Manager for hosting the entourage and prayed for the success of the project, urging the Agency to carry the association along in the process of redeveloping the Estate.
The Association, on behalf of the Estate Residents, promised to render all necessary support to the Agency for a successful completion of the project.
