The Lagos State Government has announced the temporary closure of specific roadways in a bid to facilitate ongoing construction projects.
The entrance to CMD Road, along with the Access Road to Isheri-Olowora on the Shagamu bound carriageway, are the designated areas subject to these closures.
The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Transportation, Abdulahfiz Toriola, disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday.
Toriola said that the CMD entrance will be closed for 3 days for the laying of the final wearing course, commencing on Wednesday, August 9.
He stated that the Access Road to Isheri-Olowora on the Shagamu bound carriageway, by the pedestrian Bridge at Berger bus stop, will also be closed from Thursday, August 10, for 3 days.
Toriola also added that preparatory works will commence on Wednesday, August 9, to enable the reconstruction of the remaining half of the outer lane of the carriageway.
“The following traffic management plan has been earmarked for the duration of the construction works. From Thursday, 10th August, 2023, all traffic from the expressway en-route CMD Road will have these alternative routes,” Toriola said.
Motorists on Ojota Interchange will connect to CMD Road through the access road after the FMW weighbridge to continue their journeys, and motorists on Dr. Nurudeen Olowopopo will connect to CMD Road by Otedola Estate.
