Oduduwa Way and Oduduwa Crescent in Ikeja will be closed to traffic for six days beginning from 31st August 2021.
The Lagos State Government announced that traffic will be diverted from the two streets to enable the commencement of the construction of culverts.
Announcing this in a release, the Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, stated that the culverts will channel stormwater towards the outfall across Agege Motor Road by Sogunle bus stop.
He assured that alternative routes have been suggested to ease movement during the construction period.
According to Oladeinde, motorists coming from Ladipo to link Mobolaji Bank Anthony/Maryland should connect Works Road to Oba Akinjobi Way, take a left turn and connect Joel Ogunaike Street inwards Mobolaji Bank Anthony/Maryland to access their desired destinations.
The commissioner advised road users from Ladipo end of Adekunle Fajuyi Way intending to link Mobolaji Bank Anthony/Maryland to connect Sowemimo Street, through Oladipo Bateye Street, and link Oba Akinjobi Way roundabout to Oba Dosumu Road to access Isaac John Street and turn right to Sobo Arobiodu or left to Mobolaji Bank Anthony/Maryland.
He then implored motorists coming from Mobolaji Bank Anthony/Maryland to Sogunle/Agege Motor Road to connect Isaac John Street and turn left to Sobo Arobiodu, through Sasegbon Street, to connect Oba Akinjobi Way and Works Road to access Sogunle/Agege Motor Road for their desired destinations.
While appealing to motorists to comply with the directives of the State’s Traffic Management Authority, (LASTMA) to minimise the inconveniences that may arise, Oladeinde assured that the ongoing rehabilitation of roads infrastructure would improve the movement of vehicle owners and road users, thereby easing traffic congestion within the metropolis.
