Lagos to install 13,000 CCTV cameras


The Lagos state government is set to begin installation of 13,000 Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras to improve surveillance across the state.


This was revealed by the commissioner of information and strategy, Steve Ayorinde at a press briefing at the Bagauda Kaltho Press Centre in Alausa.

He further revealed that 6000 additional street lights will be installed across the state from October 2016.

Ayorinde also said the government is looking to remove three roundabouts: 4th Roundabout (Elegushi), 5th Roundabout (Jakande) and 8th Roundabout (VGC), in order to reduce traffic.

Ayorinde further disclosed that the government had commenced the implementation of the Lagos enterprise GIS upgrade and the Integrated Land Administration Automation System.

He said when implemented, the plan would ensure proper monitoring of government infrastructure for optimum benefit, fast-track the ease of doing business and improve government-citizen relationship.

Olanrewaju Elegushi, special adviser to the governor on transport, said the removal of the roundabouts on Lekki-Epe Expressway has eased traffic congestion in the area.

Elegushi said when the road was constructed, it was accommodating about 30,000 vehicles per day but has now increased to over 50,000 daily.
