Lagos State Government to shut Ikeja road for 15 months



Road traffic on Adegbola Street will be redirected from Sunday 11th April, 2021 for 15 months to allow the construction of Ikeja Bridge for the Red Line Project of the Lagos Rail Mass Transit.

The Commissioner for Transportation of Lagos State, Dr Frederic Oladeinde, announced this in a statement.

Oladeinde clarified that the redirection was in accordance with the necessity to protect and secure motorists and other road users against any type of mishap during the specified construction period.

While guaranteeing sufficient traffic organisation strategy has been set up for the duration of the redirection, the Commissioner declared that motorists from computer village and Simbiat Abiola Way heading towards Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway will be redirected to Akinremi Street to link Oshifila Street to make their way via the rail level crossing to their appropriate termini.

The Commissioner added that motorists from Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway will similarly be redirected to the Ikeja rail level crossing to link Balogun Street and connect Oduyemi Street to link Obafemi Awolowo way to other areas.

Oladeinde further said that traffic advisory board will be positioned at Ikeja under bridge area, Simbiat Abiola way Junction and Adebola/Balogun Junctions to assist as a guide and reminder for motorists that ply these roads regularly.
