In a statement on Thursday, the Commissioner for Transportation, Dr Frederic Oladeinde explained that the total lane closure would be sustained to allow the contractor to complete the construction without any inhibition during the course of the construction of the first phase of the Lagos Rail Mass Transit, Red Line project.

Oladeinde revealed that the previous alternative routes would be maintained as well.

He stated that traffic on Murtala Muhammed Way would be diverted to Abeokuta Street to access Borno Way to Coates Street to link Murtala Muhammed Way again.

Oladeinde said that motorists could alternately access their destinations from Cemetery Street.

According to him, traffic on Apapa Road would be accommodated with the temporary lanes constructed before the overpass and will be channelised to two lanes on Murtala Muhammed Way.

The commissioner assured that the site would be cordoned off for the safety of the citizenry.

He added that emergency vehicles would be on the ground to tow broken-down vehicles along the axis.
