In order to key into the redevelopment plan of the State Government, the Ministry performed its statutory responsibilities bythe removal of encumbrances on the Right- of- Way for infrastructural development and the strategic relocation of Projects to more desirable and viable locations.
Right-of-Ways delivered engendered projects such as the Ojodu Berger, Oworonshoki Lay-Bys, Aboru-Abesan Link Bridge, Abule-Egba Bridge, Alapere-Agboyi Ketu Slip Road, the turn-around of Mosafejo, the proposed Transport Interchange, and the Lagos-Epe Expressway amongst others.
Even though Lagos is still widely referred to as a city, the present day Lagos, also known as "Metropolitan Lagos", and officially as "Lagos Metropolitan Area" As at 2015, unofficial figures put the population of "Greater Metropolitan Lagos", which includes, Lagos and its surrounding metro area, extending as far as into Ogun State, at approximately 21 million. Lagos, which means "lakes", was a name given to the settlement by the Portuguese.
The delivery in no doubt has translated to tremendous improvement in vehicular and pedestrian movement in the State.
For the purpose of deliberating on matters of delivery of Right-of-Way and illegal developments, the Ministry organizes stakeholders’ meetings regularly to address grievances, complaints and petitions as alternative dispute resolution.
This city area was governed directly by the Federal Government through the Lagos City Council, until the creation of Lagos State in 1967, which led to the splitting of Lagos city into the present day seven Local Government Areas (LGAs), and an addition of other towns (which now make up 13 LGAs) from the then Western Region, to form the state.
Lagos, the capital of Nigeria since its amalgamation in 1914, went on to become the capital of Lagos State after its creation.
