LASG ANNOUNCES TRAFFIC DIVERSION PLAN TO AID REHABILITATION OF LAGOS-IBADAN DUAL CARRIAGEWAY
Here is the traffic advisory by Lagos transport commissioner for commuters on how to survive the impending pains on the expressway that is already notorious for traffic jam
The Lagos State Government has announced traffic diversion plans as the Federal Government continues the rehabilitation of the Lagos/Sagamu axis of the Lagos-Ibadan dual carriageway.
The diversion starts from the 9th of June, 2022, for a period of six months.
Lagos State Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, in a statement, said kilometre 0-5 of the Lagos/Sagamu Expressway would be modified for traffic diversion, assuring that the other lanes on the expressway would be accessible to motorists during the course of the road construction.
He affirmed that signage and diversion signs will be installed along the route to guide motorists on movement and to ensure safety, adding that the personnel of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) will also be on ground to ensure free traffic movement.
The commissioner, however, called for cooperation, patience and understanding of motorists during the construction period, stressing that the project is geared towards a better transportation system and improved economic activity.
