The Lagos State Government has announced the diversion of traffic at Anthony Area on the Yaba-bound lane of Ikorodu Road for six days starting from Tuesday, August 31.
This was announced in a statement signed by the state Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, on Monday.
He said that the diversion is to allow for the construction of drainages.
Oladeinde explained that the drainage works were necessary due to the rainy season, adding that the project will ease the movement of motorists and road users.
He said that motorists will be able to utilise the service lane connecting Olaide Benson, Ismail Estate, Third Road Avenue, Iya Oloye Crescent Junctions and existing entrances into the expressway at Seaburn Motors and Uber Inspection Centre.
“The Exit from Anthony-Ikorodu Expressway at Uber Inspection centre linking the service lane and connecting Oshodi Road is to be temporarily blocked and a temporary exit to the service lane connecting Oshodi Road will be created about 200 meters away at the NLPC Pension Fund”, the Commissioner noted.
He stated that personnel of the Lagos Traffic Management Authority will be deployed in the area to minimise inconveniences, as he appealed to motorists to cooperate with them.
