The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has announced the complete closure of Sagamu-bound carriage way of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
The corridor of the highway will be closed down for reconstruction work from September 2, 2018 to January 15, 2019.
This was contained in a statement signed by the FRSC Public Education Officer, Ogun State Command, Florence Okpe.
Okpe said there will also 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.
She explained that the closure will enable the construction company handling the reconstruction of the highway, Julius Berger Nigeria PLC, to carry out the resurfacing work on the Lagos- Sagamu segment of the expressway.
She added that the development would automatically narrow the Lagos-bound traffic way to accommodate the Sagamu-bound motorists, thereby making it two lanes for both Lagos and Sagamu bound travellers to ply.
Okpe assured that men of the FRSC and other traffic management agencies would be deployed to ensure orderliness and control the diverted traffic for the period of diversion.
