The Lagos State Government has on Friday announced that it would shut down Adejobi Street, Agege, Adegbola railway level crossing and Works road in Ikeja on November 9, 11 and 12 this year from 8pm to 7am on each date.
According to the state government, the closure is to aid the ongoing works of the Nigeria Railway Modernisation Project (Lagos-Ibadan section) with extension to Lagos Port, Apapa.
Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde who disclosed this in a statement, explained that this phase of construction works on the designated routes would focus on the closure of the track stress dispersion and locking at various level crossings.
He implored motorists to use alternative routes provided during the construction works to enhance the free flow of traffic on the aforementioned dates.
According to him, motorists plying Adejobi, the Agege axis, will be diverted to Fagba Crossing, Toyin Crossing, and Ashade Underpass to access their desired destinations.
While appealing to road users, the commissioner enjoined those who wish to access Adegbola Street or reach other areas from Adegbola to ply Works road, Oba Akinjobi Way to Ikeja Underbridge, Ashade Underpass, Airport Underbridge, Ikeja Along, and Local Government Secretariat Way to get to their desired destinations.
He further implored motorists to comply with the traffic directions put in place to minimise inconveniences in movement.
In his views, Oladeinde stated that the closure has been slated at this time, to ensure there is a smooth and uninterrupted flow of work on the rail tracks.
His words, “The state government through this statement, appealed to residents of the State, especially motorists that ply these corridors to bear the pains, as the project is aimed at achieving a seamless multi-modal transport system that will meet the transportation needs of a larger population.”Follow us on social media
