According to a statement signed by the Commissioner for Transportation, Dr Frederic Oladeinde, the diversion became necessary to allow the contractor handling the project commence construction on the service lane inward Ikorodu from Ojota underpass to Demurin Junction.
Oladeinde revealed that this will necessitate the temporary closure of access routes to Ketu during the duration of repair works, stressing further that this section was vital to the flawless completion of the rehabilitation that has been ongoing on Ikorodu Road over the past one year.
The Statement hinted that different alternative routes have been provided for road users to utilize during the construction period. In addition the state Traffic Management Authority, LASTMA will be on ground to direct traffic for free vehicular movement.
According to the statement, Motorists coming from Iyana Oworonshoki axis inward Ketu, Mile 12 and Ikorodu will be diverted to Alapere to make an exit through Ajelogo Street and Mile 12 Underbridge or alternately use the clover leaf ramp to descend into the Maryland bound lane to access the ramp back to the bridge and take another descent into the ketu bound main carriage way.
Traffic heading towards Ketu, Mile12 and Ikorodu from Maryland/Ojota axis will be able to access the main carriage way inward Ikorodu while vehicles headed for the Lagos/Ibadan Expressway will equally have the exit ramp open to access their desired destinations.
Motorists can also use the exit ramp and make a U-turn at 7UP to use the second exit on Ojota Bridge.
The Lagos State Government through the statement appealed to residents of the State, especially motorists that ply these corridors to support the project, which is aimed at finding a lasting solution to the congestion in the metropolis in line with efficient traffic management and transportation policy of the State Government.
