Lagos Government has diverted traffic on the Lagos-Badagry Expressway.
EKOHOTBLOG reports that the Lagos State Government, on Monday, announced the diversion of traffic at Alafia Bridge along the Lagos-Badagry Expressway.
According to a statement signed by the Lagos State Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, the traffic diversion is to enable emergency repair works at the failed section of the bridge.
He noted that the diversion has commenced on Monday, October 18, 2021.
Oladeinde further explained that vehicles heading towards Mile 2 will be diverted to Tokosi Street/Kekere Ekun axis to link Baale Road inwards Alhaji Opere Street and connect Odiche Street to access the service lane inbound Mile 2 during the reconstruction.
The commissioner advised motorists heading towards Apapa-Oshodi Expressway to make a turn at Orile Bus Stop/Baale Road and connect Ogungbesan Street, after Coker Bridge to access Apapa-Oworonshoki Expressway for further journey to their various routes.
Oladeinde added that heavy-duty trucks would be diverted to the existing Carriageway, noting that the earlier mentioned diversion routes were designed to cater for light/smaller vehicles, hence will not be able to accommodate large vehicles like trucks.
He, therefore, appealed to motorists and road users to cooperate with the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) during the construction period to minimise any inconvenience, adding that patience and understanding will reduce travel time along the axis.
