Although I would guess that we all enjoy roads that have been improved, but would agree that dealing with roads that are in the process of being improved is not anyone's idea of fun. That's been the case with the busy road that runs in front of our apartment building. They tore it up during the summer and are working on one side of the road at a time as they resurface and widen it. It certainly needed to be worked on, but I wish they would just hurry up and get on with it. Days go by without any sign of progress and I don't know if we will see the day when both sides of the road will be functional. Roads are really horrible in much of Lagos, but I have seen some progress while we've been here. The road to Lekki peninsula used to be a nightmare of traffic delays, but since it was finished and made a toll road, it is usually passable, though sometimes with delays at the toll plaza. I recently read an interesting article at "Oyibosonline" which stated that there hadn't been any proper maintenance of roads in Lagos for the past three decades. "The chairman of Nigerian Society of Engineers, stated that government at all levels must be blamed for the poor state of the nation’s road network because they (the government) keep awarding road construction contracts to quacks." Witnessing the condition and constant deterioration of Lagos roads, I believe this.
