Lagos To Divert Traffic In Agege For Repair Of Road


The Lagos state government has said it will divert traffic on Dopemu road in Agege from January 21, 2022 for the rehabilitation and upgrade of Babajide Sanwo-Olu road for duration of three months.

The state’s commissioner for transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, who disclosed this, explained that this would pave way for repair works on the road, which will be executed in three phases, adding that the first phase of the project will focus on Ipaja road to Adealu street junction, which will last for three months.

Oladeinde said alternative routes have been mapped by the State’s Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) to enhance effective control of vehicular movement along the axis during the duration of the construction.

He advised motorists inbound Dopemu Bridge from Iyana Ipaja/Alagba axis to go through Ipaja road to connect Oyewole Street into Seriki Street to link Kolawole and Adebambo Streets in order to access Adealu Road for their desired destination.

The commissioner also implored motorists heading towards Dopemu bridge, from Ipaja (Oke-Koto) to use Markaz road to connect Awori Street and link Sarumi Alawo Street/Oniwaya and Surulere to continue their journey.

He said motorists can alternately go through Alfa Nla from Old Ipaja Road to connect Oniwaya/Surulere axis to reach Dopemu Bridge.

Oladeinde stressed that the alternative routes are in motorable condition and will not pose any difficulties to motorists and assured that LASTMA officials will be at the diversion routes for efficient traffic management.

He further called for support citizens, assuring them that the inconvenience will soon yield the desired outcome through an effective multi-modal transportation system in the state.
