The Lagos State Government has announced the opening of the closed sections of the Oke-koto/Agunbiade intersection in Agege Local Government Area for public use following the completion of flood abatement and rehabilitation of sections of the deteriorated road pavement.
According to a statement from the Ministry of Transportation which was duly signed by the Commissioner for Transportation, the road, which was temporarily closed to traffic in the past two months to allow for rehabilitation works including; construction of concrete pavement and widening of road exits, has now been opened for public use.
The rehabilitation and construction works which were executed by the state Ministry of Works & Infrastructure and Office of Drainage Services has now increased the vehicular capacity of the intersection for an improved traffic management of the corridor.
The State Government while thanking Motorists for their patience and cooperation during the period of rehabilitation of the road urged them to obey the traffic rules during the yuletide period and beyond.
The State Government has therefore directed all relevant Traffic Agencies, especially LASTMA to ensure the free flow of traffic along the axis while wishing Lagosians compliments of the season and happy celebration.
