Motorists in Lagos would experience more difficulties following the decision of the Lagos State Government to shutdown the entire length of the main carriageway of Ikorodu Road from Ojota interchange to Ojota Second Pedestrian Bridge from Monday, September 21, 2020, for a duration of 3 months.
This is development is part of the next phase of ongoing rehabilitation work on Ikorodu Road which is set to commence from the Ojota Interchange to Ojota Second Pedestrian Bridge and the Service lane inbound Lagos.
The Lagos State Commissioner for Transportation, Dr Frederick Oladeinde; has therefore advised all motorists to utilize alternative routes suggested; during the stipulated time for the repairs following the closure of the entire length of the main carriageway for reconstruction work.
Oladeinde said, “Vehicles coming from Maryland will be diverted at Odoyalaro into the Service lane; and the BRT Corridor to link back the main carriageway at Ketu bus stop and Demurin junction respectively.’’
The commissioner gave an assurance that the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA); and other law enforcement agencies will be available to direct traffic for free vehicular movement; during the entire period of construction work.
While soliciting for the cooperation and support of residents and motorists that ply the axis; the Commissioner stated that the project is aimed at finding a lasting solution to the ever-busy road; as well as to achieve the present administration’s traffic management and transportation policy objectives.
