The Lagos state government will divert traffic when it embarks on the casting of the round deck of the Iyana-Iba interchange bridge on Saturday.
Transport Commissioner Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, in a statement on Wednesday, said the job would take 24 hours.
Oladeinde said the detour was necessary to continue the ongoing construction of the Lagos-Badagry highway, which is now at an advanced stage.
He said that the state government was ready to complete the road project to Okokomaiko as previously announced.
According to him, motorists in the service lane entering Lagos will be diverted to NEPA Road, from the Okokomaiko and Alaba Rogo axis.
He noted that vehicles would be directed to access Olojo Drive, connect the Alaba International Market and the Volkswagen Bus Stop, inland at mile marker 2, and then continue their travels.
“In addition, traffic in the Lagos entrance service lane, heading to Volkswagen, Mile 2 and LASU axis will be diverted to the LRMT Corridor/Toll Lane to reconnect the Lagos bound lane to their desired destinations.
“Motorists inland from Badagry and Iba will use the service lane from Baracks to LASU and Okokomaiko to continue their travels.
“The State Traffic Management Authority will be on the ground to manage traffic flow and minimize inconvenience,” Oladeinde said.
The commissioner called on residents to cooperate as the current administration works to deliver on the promise of improving the transportation network within the state.
