Motorists heading to inner streets of the axis to use Mobolaji Bank Anthony to access Emmanuel, Aderibigbe Shitta and Adeoye Adeyemi Streets.
Those heading towards Mende and its environs urged to use Mende Street to link Ajose Street and connect Oki lane to continue their journey.
The Lagos State Government has announced plans to divert traffic from Maryland/Mende Underpass from Tuesday 20th September, 2022 (tomorrow) in continuation of the Opebi/Ojota Link Bridge construction.
A statement signed by the Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, said alternative routes have been mapped out to ease movement during the reconstruction of the underpass. He advised motorists to use the Ojota Interchange to connect Maryland and its environs.
Oladeinde urged motorists heading to the inner streets of the axis to make use of Mobolaji Bank Anthony to access Emmanuel, Aderibigbe Shitta and Adeoye Adeyemi Streets. He advised motorists heading towards Mende and its environs to use Mende Street to link Ajose Street and connect Oki lane to continue their journey.
Reaffirming that personnel of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) will be deployed to the affected routes to minimise inconveniences, Oladeinde noted that the projects are aimed at ameliorating the traffic challenges in Lagos.
The Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu had on Wednesday 26 January 2022 flagged off the construction of the Ojota-Opebi Link Bridges and Approach roads that will solve major traffic conflicts in Ikeja.
According to the State Government, the traffic solution was proposed 20 years ago to ease off perennial gridlocks that usually stretch from Sheraton Link Road into Opebi corridor.
