Government urges understanding as road maintenance begins
The Lagos State government has craved the understanding and patience of residents of the state, as the Federal Ministry of Transportation commences maintenance work on some roads.
According to the state government, which said that it has mapped out alternative routes for motorists, following notification by the ministry, the end result of the exercise would be beneficial to both the people and the state.
The roads to be maintained are Abule Nla, Brewery and Gaskiya Level Crossings.
The state Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, who made the disclosure, explained that diversions would be effected on April 8, April 15 and April 16 on the routes.
He stated that maintenance work on the Gaskiya Level Crossing would begin on April 8 for eight days, while Abule Nla and Brewery Crossings would be maintained on April 15 and April 16.
The commissioner added that a counter flow would be created in each opened lane for motorists plying Gaskiya axis.
In the same vein, motorists would be diverted to Costain Bridge during the 24-hour repair work on Abule Nla and Brewery Level Crossings.
“To further manage traffic, guides will be mounted along the affected routes to help motorists to navigate the axis, while the State Traffic Management Authority will be on ground to coordinate movement,’’ Oladehinde stated.
