The Lagos state government has announced a one-month traffic diversion on the Oke-koto/Agunbiade intersection in Agege Local Government Area to carry out flood abatement works and rehabilitation.
The Commissioner for Transportation in the state, Frederic Oladeinde, said the section of the road will be temporarily closed to traffic from October 21 to November 21, 2022.
Road users have been asked to obey traffic signs which have been mounted along the construction zone in order to minimize discomfort for road users and ensure smooth traffic flow during the rehabilitation period.
“Oke-koto bound motorists from Oba Ogunji through the Fly Over Bridge have been advised to navigate their ways through the bridge ramp to Old Abeokuta/Nitel and Connect Orile-Agege.
“Similarly Oba Ogunji bound motorists from Old Abeokuta road are enjoined to drive through Agege- Isokoko to connect Asade-Oba Akran road. Motorists from Ipaja road can also use all the available alternative routes e.g Morcass road, to link Oniwaya and continue their journey.
“Explaining further the traffic diversion plan, the release however stated that the diversion exercise will not prevent motorists coming from Agunbiade and its adjoining streets from using the Pen Cinema Bridge inward Oba Ogunji road.”
Relevant traffic management agencies especially the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) will ensure free flow of traffic while the exercise lasts.
