The Lagos State Government has announced a six-week partial closure of the service lane inbound Maryland from the end of Gani Fawehinmi Park to the end of the 2nd pedestrian bridge, Ojota from Tuesday.

The state Commissioner for Transportation, Dr Frederic Oladeinde, in a statement on Monday, November 16, in Lagos said that the step was part of the ongoing reconstruction of Ikorodu Road.

Oladeinde also said that the partial closure was to allow the contractor handling the stretch of the project from Ojota to Maryland bound to continue with the next phase of the construction.

The commissioner said: “By the new arrangement, motorists coming from the Ikeja axis are advised to use 7UP road; through Billings way to link Oregun/Kudirat Abiola Way inbound Ikorodu road by Ojota bus stop.

“Traffic inward Ojota Bus stop/Maryland from the Ibadan-Lagos Expressway could either proceed to Oworonshoki/Gbagada; or descend the loop by Abiola Garden to connect Ikorodu road (inbound Ketu), and also ascend the loop back to the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway through the loop beside LAMATA Office to access Ikorodu road to Ojota.”

He also assured that adequate road signs had been provided to guide the motorists’ movement.

According to him, the state government effort is aimed at ensuring thorough repair works; within the stipulated time of the construction works.

Oladeinde also added that the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) would be fully on the ground; towards ensuring smooth as well as steady traffic flow.

“Motorists plying the corridor are advised to endure any likely inconvenience.

“The project is aimed at finding a lasting solution to traffic congestion on that axis; in line with efficient traffic management and transportation policy of the state government,” he said.
