Ikeja Underbridge, Simbiat Abiola Way Affected
The Lagos State Government will divert traffic on Awolowo Way between Ikeja Underbridge and Simbiat Abiola Way from noon on Saturday, 12th March to 6.00am on Monday 14th March 2022, for junction improvement works.
In a statement released by the Ministry of Transportation, the Commissioner, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, explained that the traffic diversion was necessary to facilitate the delivery of the junction improvement works in record time while ensuring the safety of motorists.
Assuring that an adequate traffic management plan has been put in place for the period of the diversion, the Commissioner disclosed that motorists inbound Awolowo Way from the General Hospital, Ikeja or Airport Road will be diverted to Oba Akran through Ikeja Underbridge, or make a turn at Allen Junction to Ajao Road by Lagoon Hospital to link Adeniyi Jones and connect with Oba Akran to further their journey, adding that Aromire Avenue will also be open to motorists as an alternative.
Oladeinde also stated that motorists inbound Ikeja Underbridge from Simbiat Abiola Way heading towards Adeniyi Jones and other areas in Ikeja will be diverted through Akinremi Street to link Oshifila Street and Abeokuta Street to access Oba Akran onto their desired destinations.
While noting that the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority personnel will be on ground to control traffic, the statement further appealed to residents and motorists in the area to cooperate with the government and its representatives so that work will be completed at the stipulated time.
