National Stadium, Surulere traffic jam ends on Sunday as flyover reopens

Steady traffic resumes on Sunday along Western Avenue (officially called Funsho Williams Avenue) as the National Stadium flyover is reopened to the public.

This comes on the heels of an announcement by the Lagos State Government on Saturday.

After approving the completion of rehabilitation works on the facility, Director, Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation, Lagos State Ministry of Works, Mr Lateef Shomide, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that replacement of expansion joints on the flyover had been completed.

LASTMA officials working through the traffic snarl caused by the repairs.

Shomide said debris generated as a result of the rehabilitation was being cleared to effect the re-opening of the highway to traffic.


He said, “The Alaka-Stadium flyover closed to traffic will soon be opened. We have closed it for about three weeks. By the grace of God all things being equal by Sunday we should be able to open the bridge for public use.”

Rehabilitation works had been carried out on the Western Avenue, Costain-bound carriageway in the past month.
