The Sagamu-bound carriage way on Lagos/Ibadan Expressway will be closed down for reconstruction work for a period of 18 weeks.
This was in a statement released by the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) Ogun state command which was signed by the Public Education Officer, Route Commander Florence Okpe.
There will be temporary diversion of traffic to incoming carriageway between Kilometre 27 which is about 200 metres before the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) camp Car Park C U-turn to Kilometre 25 after the camp’s main gate.
The closure will enable the construction company working on the reconstruction of the highway, Julius Berger Plc, to carry out the resurfacing work on the Lagos- Sagamu segment of the expressway.
This development according to FRSC would automatically narrow the Lagos bound traffic route to accommodate the Sagamu bound motorists, thereby making it two lanes for both Lagos and Sagamu bound travelers to ply.
FRSC officials and other traffic management agencies would be deployed to ensure orderliness and control the diverted traffic for the period of diversion.
The period of this reconstruction would be from Sunday 02 September 2018 to Tuesday 15 January 2019.
Motorists are to drive within the maximum speed limit of 50km per hour, prescribed by the National Road Traffic Regulations, 2012, as maximum speed at construction zones.
