In furtherance of the rehabilitation works on the Ojota interchange to Ojota second pedestrian bridge portion of Ikorodu Road, the Lgos State government has announced a traffic diversion on the Ikorodu bound service lane from Monday, 23rd January. The diversion will last two weeks.
In a statement, the Commissioner for Transportation, Dr Frederic Oladeinde said that the diversion was necessitated by the repair to some asphalt failings observed at the edge of the ramps inwards Iyana-Oworo/Gbagada axis, and Seven-Up on Lagos/Ibadan Expressway.
He said that alternative routes have been provided for motorists.
He explained that vehicles coming from Maryland on the service lane would be diverted at the second pedestrian bridge into the main carriage way to make a turn at Mile 12 underpass, and continue their journey on Lagos/Ibadan Expressway, or link Demurin Road along Ketu axis of the expressway.
Oladeinde assured that the officers of the state Traffic Management Authority and other traffic management agencies would be on ground to direct traffic to ease vehicular movements.
He appealed to residents, especially motorists that ply the corridor, to support the project which is “aimed at finding a lasting solution to the ever-busy road in line with efficient traffic management and transportation policy of the state government.
