According to a statement signed on Thursday by the State Commissioner for Transport, Mr. Oluwaseun Osiyemi, the construction works and Traffic diversion will run from Saturday, September 23rd, to November 30th, 2023.
Osiyemi said alternative routes have been made available for motorists during the construction period are as follows: “Traffic from Iyana Ipaja heading towards Oke Koto axis will be diverted after the Mulero Street intersection to the outward lane for counter flow and will return to the original lane at the next median opening.
“Traffic from Aigbotikuyo/Oke Koto axis heading towards Iyana Ipaja will be required to merge into one lane to accommodate counter flow and will revert back to two lanes after passing the Ibile Oil and Gas Petrol Filling Station at the Arige Street intersection”.
