Lagos State Ministry Of Transportation Announces Traffic Diversion For Rail Mass Transit
In line with the construction of the Lagos Rail Mass Transit (blue line), the State Government will be diverting the traffic flow along the National theatre/Marina axis of the road from Monday, 9th August, 2021 for a duration of about 221 days (7months, 1 week).
The Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde in a statement released by the Ministry, assured that a robust Traffic Management Plan has been prepared to ensure safety of motorists and construction personnel during the course of the construction, adding that the T.M.P will address the impact of the construction work on traffic and subsequently eliminate traffic related issues.
Oladeinde explained that the construction will commence on the Right hand side of the road for a duration of 116 days while the left hand side will take 182 days. He further stated that some of the works will be done simultaneously as some aspect of the construction would require such attention.
Motorists will be diverted to the descending ramp of Ebute-Ero to link Marina ring road through a diversion point. Alternately, traffic will be diverted to Chapel Street along Apongbon to access Broad Street.
