In furtherance of the Nigerian Railway Modernisation Project (Lagos-Ibadan section), the Lagos State Government will temporarily close down Brewery Level Crossing/Gaskiya Road for construction works between Friday, February 15 and Thursday, February 20, 2020.
To ease traffic movement, the construction on the said routes would be done in two parts. The work to be done on the first part would last for three days. This would be the same duration for the second part of the said routes. Commuters will be allowed to ply the open side of the road in order to ease vehicular movement during construction.
Motorists are advised to comply with all traffic directions and road signals put in place to minimise the inconveniences that may be experienced while the construction works last.
Similarly, Ogunmokun Railway Crossing will be closed to traffic on Saturday, 15thFebruary 2020. The closure would be from 8:00 pm on the 15th, to 12:00 pm on Sunday, 16th February 2020. This closure if for the installation of Level Crossing Rubber Panels by CCECC, the contractor handling the Project.
Motorists are also advised to use alternative routes during the construction exercise. Traffic through Ogunmokun axis will be diverted to Ilupeju Crossing for access to Mushin Road, Oshodi and Surulere. Yaba Crossing and Jibowu are other alternative routes.
Lagos State Government, therefore, appealed to residents, especially motorists that ply these corridors to cooperate with traffic officers during the planned closure.
