In order to ease the work and ensure seamless flow of traffic, the Alausa Secretariat, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway bound motorists will be diverted through Oyero Street, Ohundun Street and Ikosi Road, while Lagos bound motorists will use the already completed main carriageway inward Lagos. Road users are also advised to exit from the “inward Lagos carriageway” at LAMATA interchange to connect 3rd Axial Road as an alternative route.

The Commissioner while analysing the progress made so far on the project, mentioned that pavement works on the main Carriageway inward Lagos had been completed, while inward Ikorodu will be completed in the next few days.

The statement assured that adequate traffic management measures have been put in place to ease traffic congestion along the route, stressing that it will only be effective if motorists cooperate with the traffic management personnel deployed to the corridor.

The Lagos State Government appeals to Lagosians to complement these initiatives with total compliance with traffic directives and total adherence to the Traffic laws as it will ensure better mobility during the course of the construction and seamless flow of traffic along the corridor in the nearest future.
