Road diversion and partial road closure on Monday commenced in preparation for the reconstruction of a portion of Lagos-Ibadan Expressway. The portion of the road set for reconstruction is from Berger Bus Stop to Kara Bridge.
Security and traffic management officials have been deployed to the scene of the diversion to control security and traffic situation. Federal Controller of Works in Lagos State, Adedamola Kuti said that as soon as the diversion is completed, the road construction will commence. “We are starting from towards the end of the Bridge.
“Those who are leaving Lagos, we will restrict them to their lane while those who are coming into Lagos, we will move them to the inner-bound lane after which we can now secure the construction zone,” he said.
The Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) had earlier on Sunday announced that due to the reconstruction work, movement from Kara Bridge inward Berger would be sealed off while traffic would be diverted into the other part of the road going out of Lagos.
