Igbo- Efon: The Igbo-Efon area is one of the not so attractive areas to reside in the Chevron area. There is a poor road network as the road in the area is narrow and not particularly in a good condition. The Igbo-Efon area is not gated like other areas in chevron and this poses some security risks. More so, commercial activities are not so great in the area.
Atlantic View Estate : The Atlantic View Estate got it’s name from the Atlantic Ocean as it is close to the ocean. It actually boasts of some good infrastructures and facilities. However, some of these structures and facilities in the estate are dilapidated as a result of the proximity of the estate to the Atlantic ocean. There are a lot of instances where the estate was affected by Ocean Surge and this badly affected the people living there at that time. Nevertheless, a lot of work has been done and more work is still going on at the estate as the the Lagos State Government is doing its best to ensure that that type of occurrence does not repeat itself.
