Lagos State government yesterday said it has concluded plans to deploy 13, 000 Closed Circuit Television ( CCTV) cameras across the state and additional 6,000 street lights and security sensors for surveillance and crime prevention to ensure safety of lives and property in the state.
The state government in a joint press conference addressed by Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Steve Ayorinde and other top government officials assured that the CCTV will be functioning in the state from October , 2016.
Ayorinde added that government is also set to decongest traffic along the Lekki-Epe Expressway through the removal of three roundabouts namely the 4th Roundabout (Elegushi); 5th Roundabout (Jakande) and the 8th Roundabout (VGC).
He said the affected roundabouts would be replaced by the use of traffic lights, expansion of the roads and provision of dedicated turning lanes as well as additional lay-bys.
Ayorinde further disclosed that the state government has commenced the implementation of the Lagos Enterprise, Geographical Information System  upgrade and the Integrated Land Administration Automation System.

Harping on the Pen Cinema Fly-over, the state’s commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Engr. Ganiyu Johnson, said it has been approved for the construction, saying it would be completed within 18 to 24 months.
