Lagos To Divert Traffic At Tollgate/Berger Axis For 75 Days
The Lagos State Government has announced that traffic on the Old Tollgate to Berger section of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway will be diverted starting Monday, January 30th until Friday, April 15th, 2023.
The diversion is necessary due to the ongoing rehabilitation of the expressway, which is being undertaken by the Federal Ministry of Works.
This was contained in a statement issued on Friday by the Lagos State Commissioner for Transport, Dr Frederic Oladeinde.
He explained that the construction will be carried out in short segments in order to minimize inconvenience for motorists. To facilitate the reconstruction of half of the Ibadan-bound carriageway, traffic on this side of the expressway will be narrowed to two lanes.
As part of the traffic diversion, the U-turn in front of the Lagos State Emergency Centre will be temporarily closed to traffic.
Motorists on the expressway will be directed to the next U-turn at the Old Toll Gate by the traffic control point. Additionally, traffic from CMD Road intending to connect 7UP and Motorways on the Lagos bound carriageway will also make use of the Old Tollgate/Traffic Point U-turn.
To accommodate heavy-duty vehicles, trucks will be diverted to the Ojota Interchange. Oladeinde also informed the public that traffic on CMD Road inbound the Expressway will be diverted to the entry point beside the FMW weighbridge to access the Expressway on a contraflow as the exit route to the Expressway by Caleb International School will also be temporarily closed.
CMD Road will serve as an alternative route for the displaced Ibadan-bound traffic.
The Commissioner appealed to the citizens to avoid indiscriminate stopping, waiting, and parking along CMD Road to assist the efforts of the Traffic Management Team that will be deployed to manage vehicular movement. He also confirmed that signage with directions will be mounted along the road to guide motorists.
Comments are closed, but trackbacks and pingbacks are open.
