Lagos State Government announced traffic diversion plans as the Federal Government proceeds with the rehabilitation of the Lagos/Shagamu axis of the Lagos-Ibadan dual carriageway from the June 9, 2022, for a duration of six months.
Lagos State Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, announced the planned traffic diversion.
According to the rehabilitation schedule contained in the notification, kilometer 0-5 of the Lagos/Shagamu Expressway will be modified for traffic diversion.
Oladeinde assured that the other lanes on the expressway will be accessible to motorists during the cause of the construction.
He added that signage and diversion signs will be installed along the route to guide motorists on movement and to ensure safety, adding that the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, LASTMA, will be on ground to control traffic flow.
Oladeinde, therefore, called for patience and understanding as the construction “is geared towards a better transportation system and improved economic activity.”
